As a native of the area, Michael Feggans was raised in the West Kempsville portion of Virginia Beach. He is the son of those who truly understand what it means to serve others; his mother was a career Norfolk public school teacher for 30+ years, and his father was a Captain for the Norfolk International Airport Fire Department. A proud product of the Virginia Beach Public School system, upon graduation Michael immediately enlisted in the U.S Air Force to pursue a career that would provide him the opportunity to become an innovative leader. After 20 years of service in the Air Force, he knew the best place to retire from the military and start his next career as a tech entrepreneur was back home in Virginia Beach. With the creation of the new 97th House District, Michael is stepping forward once again to provide a fresh voice and continue serving the community he loves.
