My name is Kellie L. Wells and I am a professional hurdler and sprinter for Nike from Richmond Virginia. I am one of the top ranked hurdlers in the United States and the world. I have countless records, awards, and honors in athletics. I am extremely driven and strive to be the #1 hurdler in the near future. Everything I do is done to gratify God and to make my deceased mother and family proud. I graduated as a double major in sport management and marketing from Hampton University in 2005 and went on to attain my masters in marketing in 2006. I consider myself to me an all around person and not just stuck in a “jock” role. I do endless hours of community service, I mentor children and I work in sports modeling. Making an impact and leaving my footprints in the world is so important to me.
