We all know a lot of women who abandoned their dreams and aspiration to raise their kid(s) and those who, against all odds, rose up to the challenge of raising kids singlehandedly and eventually had the last laugh. Many consider Brittany Wagner as a major inspiration not only because she is an incredible personality who has won the hearts of many in the world of sports, but also because she recorded these giant strides as a single mom.
The Netflix documentary show, Last Chance U was the project that announced Wagner to the world. Although she was already making waves in her fields of endeavor before bagging a role in the series, she instantly became a subject of interest across the world after appearing in the Netflix project. Let’s get to discover more about this super mom.
Brittany Wagner – Bio (Age)
Wagner’s parents gave birth to her on November 15, 1977, in the United States, precisely in Clinton, Mississippi. However, she is yet to share with the media who her parents are, what her childhood looked like, and if she is an only child.
Brittany is believed to have grown up in her native town, considering that she attended a high school in Clinton as well. According to records, the Last Chance U star graduated from Clinton High School and later joined Samford University for her higher education. After spending some time at Samford, she decided to move over to Mississippi University to round up her studies; the transfer took place in 1998. Wagner eventually completed her studies two years later and was awarded a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Studies by the university.
She later returned to Mississippi for her master’s degree a couple of months after her graduation. She would earn a Master’s in Sports Administration upon completing her studies.
While studying for her Master’s degree, she was hired at Jacksonville State University Athletic Department but after her final year, she decided to accept a job offer by the University of Mississippi. She worked at the institution until 2009 when she hired as an athletic instructional advisor and compliance assistant at the East Mississippi Community College.
Brittany Wagner became an international figure in 2016 when she appeared in the widely acclaimed Netflix documentary series, Last Chance U. Since then, her immense popularity within and beyond the football community has earned her interviews on platforms such as New York Daily News, The Dan Patrick Show, The Kidd Kraddick In the Morning Show, ABC’s Nightline, The New York Times, GQ, to mention a few.
Currently, she works as a motivational speaker, life coach, and athletic academic counselor. The Clinton-born life coach has also offered her valuable advice and insights to students in the universities and high school.
At the moment, Brittany Wagner is a single woman, however, she was previously married to a sports enthusiast known as Mark White. The particular year and location the pair tied the knot are yet to be disclosed and there is no available information about their divorce.
White and Wagner had a daughter named Kennedy Grier from their marital relationship; Kennedy is currently in custody of her mother. Brittany’s ex-husband previously worked at East Mississippi Community College for eight years before joining Tallahassee Community College as its basketball coach.
An Austin Peay State University alumnus, Mark is also a father to a boy named Cade who reportedly came from a previous relationship.
Apart from her height, details about the academic counselor’s weight and body statistics are difficult to come by. Information about her dress and shoe sizes are also not available. This is unsurprising considering Brittany Wagner is relatively new to the limelight.
