Janelle Wells, PhD

Two decades ago through her love of sport, Dr. Wells earned a collegiate athletic scholarship, progressed into the collegiate coaching ranks, and then transcended into the private sector before transitioning into the classroom as a professor at the University of South Florida, Vinik Sport & Entertainment Management Program.

As a lifelong learner, Dr. Wells’ lived experiences in the male-prevalent industry of sport stimulated her award-winning research in organizational behavior, specifically leadership, career development, and gender equity, which has been published in outlets such as the Journal of Sport Management and the Leadership & Organizational Development Journal.

In addition to Dr. Wells’ 100-plus published works and presentations, she has put theory into practice through WellsQuest partnering with several professional sport properties and brands. In 2015, she partnered with the National Hockey League’s Tampa Bay Lightning to create the Lightning Leadership Line – a personal and professional development program.
