About Kris Monaco-Geis
It’s funny to be chosen as a celebrity dancer when in fact I am just married to one (Fred Geis)! I grew up in Sagamore Hills, Ohio, where I met Fred when I was 8 years old (and when he wasn’t a celebrity yet!). I, on the other hand, became quite popular in my town as The Nail Girl. I owned and operated two salons for 15 years and earned the National Award of Salon of the Year. Closing my business in 2008 was a tough decision as the industry simply became overwhelmed with nail salons. Since then, Fred and I married and we currently live in downtown Cleveland. We enjoy traveling, exploring our beautiful hometown of Cleveland, and quiet nights at home with our dog, Mr. Watson. I am an active volunteer for the Boys Hope Girls Hope Foundation as well as a board member of the Katherine and Erwin Geis Charitable Foundation. I strongly believe in both of these organizations and their missions to help youth from challenging circumstances obtain a solid education through support and scholarships. I feel honored and blessed to have this great life, and I can only hope that life continues to be healthy, happy and fun as the wife of a celebrity!
