Wells competed in gymnastics during high school before switching to track. Converting from 4 hours of practicing a day to practicing for an hour for track, she wanted something else to supplement her track career, which led her to begin CrossFit. Eventually choosing CrossFit over track, she had to turn down a track scholarship that she had been working all of high school to achieve to focus completely on CrossFit.

The first CrossFit Open she participated in, in 2013, she placed 115th in the North Central Region. In 2014, she placed 9th in the region and top 100 worldwide. She declined her individual invite to compete at regionals with her team, CrossFit 540 Beefy, who took 5th. Future goals include competing as an individual at the North Central Regionals next year, and eventually earn a podium finish.
