Reignite The Drive & Passion

When people have been conditioned to expect a lack of mental, physical and emotional support from those around them, it can be difficult to motivate and inspire them to perform at their highest level. This can lead to burnout, apathy and anxiety throughout an organization from the top down.

For eight years I motivated the student athletes of "Last Chance U" to believe in themselves and achieve a higher level of performance in academics, athletics and life. Now every player I have worked with who plays in the NFL has a college degree.

A Few Organizations Who Have Hired Brittany

What People Say About Brittany

June Giddings

Education Specialist
Brittany spoke at the Texas Challenge to Reach Higher State Convening providing a powerful and inspiring message for the educators and counselors present. Through laughter and tears we were reminded of simple approaches to supporting our students like meeting our students where they are and allowing students to come to you with a blank slate. Participants were asked for feedback answering “What I learned” and “A-Ha Moments” with responses that included #headphones and #WeNotI.

Rose Mary Harvey

Manager, Health Link
Brittany recently spoke at our Managed Care Conference, which is group of professional healthcare providers, as well as human resource management from local manufacturing companies. She was awesome! Her message was inspirational as well as motivational. She was also so kind to stay for a short time after and let attendees take pictures with her. They really enjoyed that!

Reo Pruiett

Senior Director of Programs, Educate Texas
Brittany's message was so on-point and inspiring. With more than 700 statewide college and career readiness educators in the room, her great energy and message of perseverance and doing whatever it takes to help kids succeed resonated with our collective passion to help Texas students. She really drove home a can-do attitude!

Janet Briggs

Division Chair, English Instructor, East Mississippi Community College
Brittany has the gift of being a drill sergeant one minute and a compassionate mentor the next. Her knowledge and organizational skills help students create a life plan and her tough love helps them initiate the plan. I have witnessed her helping students succeed that without her help might have fallen through the cracks of life.

Randy Speck

Madison School District Superintendent, Michigan
It is a pleasure working with Brittany. She has been to our district, met with students and has spoken to our staff. She brings the same level of passion and enthusiasm that you see on Last Chance U to our school every time she's with us. She has a heart for students and for walking alongside them so they can reach their full potential and start dreaming!

Quinton Dial

San Francisco 49ers
Brittany Wagner is one of the most influential people in my life. She helped mold me into the man I am today! She was like a mom to me. She stayed on me about my education, which I am very grateful for. I am so thankful for her! There were many highs and lows during my time at EMCC, but she made sure I remained level-headed throughout it all. I thank God for placing her in my life.

Brittany Wagner's

impact on Green Bay Packers' Za'Darius Smith

“Smith didn’t begin playing football until his senior year of high school and started his college career at East Mississippi Community College, a junior college that has risen to national prominence thanks to “Last Chance U” on Netflix. Smith credits academic adviser Brittany Wagner as someone who kept him on the right path. Wagner became one of the central figures on the show, though she left the college in 2017.”

Brittany Wagner

Brittany Wagner is a nationally respected athletic academic counselor and motivational speaker best known for her role as the breakout star of the hit Netflix documentary series, Last Chance U. Recognized for her compassion, encouragement, and no-nonsense attitude, Brittany has served as mentor, mother, and disciplinarian to the individuals behind some of college football’s most inspiring success stories.

Throughout her career, Brittany has guided many young men to academic and professional success despite run-ins with the law, extreme poverty, abandonment, and often a complete lack of academic preparedness. Brittany’s inadvertent stardom led to feature interviews with ABC’s Nightline, The Dan Patrick Show, GQ, The New York Times, The LA Times and Sports Illustrated — to name just a few.

Prior to filming the documentary series, Brittany spent over fifteen years working with college athletes. During her eight years at East Mississippi Community College in Scooba, Mississippi, she helped over 200 football players academically qualify for nationally respected NCAA Division I schools. All of the students Brittany previously advised who made it to the NFL also hold college degrees.

Over the past two years, Brittany has traveled all over the United States as a motivational speaker. In the fall of 2017, she launched her own company, Ten Thousand Pencils (10KP). Through 10KP, Brittany is able to aid at-risk youth by working individually with high school and college-level administrators, counselors, and teachers to help them build relationships with these students and better understand and support their emotional, social, and academic needs.

Charter Communications will begin production in 2020 on a new, scripted television series based on Brittany’s personal and professional life. Michael Strahan and Courteney Cox are executive producers on the project. Courteney will also star in the show, portraying Brittany.

Brittany earned both her undergraduate and graduate degrees in Sports Communication and Administration from Mississippi State University. She currently resides in Birmingham, Alabama with her daughter, Kennedy.
