Wagner has advised the Grove City College chapter since her arrival in 2001.

Background: Before joining Grove City's faculty, Wagner taught physics for a year at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas, followed by three years at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., where she revived the inactive SPS chapter.
