Love, learn, lead, and lift are hallmarks of Dr. Janelle Wells’ life work.

Through her consulting work at WellsQuest, she positively disrupts systems, teams, and individuals by empowering leaders. Most recently, she has partnered with the Tampa Bay Lighting to create the Lightning Leadership Line – a personal and professional development initiative.
Lifting with her servant heart, Dr. Wells finds fulfillment developing students as an Assistant Professor at USF, serving her community as an advisory board member of the YMCA, and empowering women as a founding board member of Women in Sports and Events (WISE)Tampa Bay. Dr. Wells’ most meaningful purpose is raising three active young boys with her husband.band.
