Third of children and oldest son, in 1977 Michael met his soulmate Carolyn Smith in English class at Eastern Wayne High School, just two months before their graduation. After high school, Michael and Carolyn dated and attended her church where in 1978 he accepted the Lord into the center of his life just weeks prior to enlisting in the U.S. Navy.

Trained as a nuclear submarine electrician and navy SCUBA diver, Michael proposed to his high school sweetheart in 1979 and they were married in June of 1980. For the next three years, he deployed around the world in support of the U.S.- Soviet Cold War. While serving as an enlisted submariner, Michael felt a strong tug to obtain post-secondary education-a reality in 1983 after his competitive selection to a Navy program that took him to Auburn University, Alabama. At Auburn, he obtained a bachelor's degree in Political Science and a commission as an active-duty naval officer. Trained in surface warfare, Michael served as an engineering officer and combat systems officer in two different surface ships and became a father to their first of two daughters in 1990.

By 1992, he was selected to serve as adjunct professor of naval science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where the Wegman's welcomed a second daughter, Rachel, into their family as he completed graduate business school and transferred his commission to the Naval Reserves. Placing his family ahead of his naval career, Michael became a stockbroker for Prudential Securities in Durham, North Carolina to help raise his daughters.

Trained on Wall Street in the risky fast-paced world of stock market trading, Michael desired a more consultative financial advising experience and in 1996 obtained advanced certifications and licensure as a Financial Advisor, Registered Investment Advisor, and Retirement Planning Counselor. In 1998 the Wegman family moved back to Goldsboro and Michael transferred his practice to First Citizens Investor Services in Clinton, NC. As an FCIS regional Vice President, he managed $66 million in client assets at 14 branches located in 9 cities in Eastern North Carolina until September 11, 2001 changed the world and Michael's career destiny. Now promoted to Lieutenant Commander in the reserves, he was mandatorily recalled back to active duty in 2002, 2005, and finally permanently in 2008. For the next 6 years he served at the behest of the Navy in Italy, Kuwait, and eventually Norfolk, Virginia where he retired as a full Commander in 2014. He taught Navy Junior ROTC at Smithfield-
Selma High School from 2014-2020, retiring to re-enter the financial services industry as a licensed insurance broker with North American Senior Benefits in NC and West Virginia. Today, Michael's focus is on helping families mitigate risk and safeguard against unforeseen tragedy.
