Jennifer Welter Speaker Profile
Jennifer Welter Biography
In terms of athletic resumes, few are a hard-hitting as that of little 52 linebacker Dr. Jen Welter. Jen found her love for full-contact sports at Boston College, where she proudly represented for Boston College all four years. In her fourth year playing rugby Jen was named the team MVP, and was recruited for the Under 23 National Team. Though Dr. Welter was an impressive rugby player, she was about the size of the other props, and her dream to represent the USA in Rugby ended there.
Not long after retiring from rugby, Jen was asked to tryout for the Mass Mutiny, an NFL rules, full contact, womens football team. Though she feared her size might keep her from being selected, she had to try. Jen made the Mutiny and played her first two seasons of football with them. In her second season, Jen was named an All-American.
After her second football season, Jen relocated to Dallas, TX. Jen played her first season in Dallas with the Dallas Dragons. Directly following that season, Welter left the Dragons and joined the Dallas Diamonds in fall of 2004. Jen recently completed her 10th season with the Dallas Diamonds, and in that time, she was named an All-American 7 times, bringing her career total to 8. In her tenure as a Diamond, Dr. Welter, or as her teammates say, the team won four World Championships (04, 05, 06, & 08), and played in, yet did not win the 2013 Championship.
In addition to her success with the Dallas Diamonds, Dr. Welter has also played football at the International Level. In 2010, Jen was one of 45 women selected to represent the United States at the International Federation for American Footballs (IFAF) inaugural Womens World Championship (WWC). Team USA traveled to Stockholm Sweden where they swept the competition and won a gold medal. As a member of Team USA, Welter was so small that her teammates referred to her as Kid, but size didnt stop the Kid from leading her team in tackles and being named to the All-World All-Star Team. In 2013, Jen was one of only 14 women from the 2010 Gold medal team, among the 45 selected to play at the 2nd IFAF WWC. In 2013, Team USA successfully defended the Gold Medal in Vantaa Finland, and Jen won her 2nd Gold Medal. On October 21st, Jen was among the players honored at the White House by the Council on Women and Girls.
Throughout, her football career Jen pursued her education. Not only did 2013 bring Welter her 2nd Gold Medal, but it also brought her PhD in Psychology. Jen officially became Dr. Welter with the publication of her dissertation, The Wonderlic Classic Cognitive Ability Test as a measure of player selection and success for Quarterbacks in the National Football League.
Dr. Welters success in both football and education has been supported by her fitness career, which began in high school, when she first became certified to teach aerobics by AFAA. While getting her BS from Boston College in Marketing, her Masters in Sport Psychology and PhD in Psychology from Capella, and throughout her football playing career, Jen has always stayed true to her passion for health and fitness. Throughout her 17 year fitness career, Jen has taken certifications with AFAA, Reebok, NESTA, and NASM. Dr. Welter is currently an Expert rated CPT. Football, fitness, and psychology are interwoven in Dr. Welters endeavors in speaking, writing, consulting, and mentorship.
