Destiny Scott Wells has served in government at the local, state, federal, and multi-national level. She is a government litigation attorney, whose practice area largely focuses on defending the government and its employees against constitutional claims. Recently, she served as Associate Corporation Counsel for the City of Indianapolis and Marion County, and Deputy Attorney General for the State of Indiana.
Destiny currently serves in the US Army Reserve. She first enlisted with the Indiana Army National Guard at the age of 19, early in the throes of post-9/11. In 2014-2015, she mobilized in support of Operation Enduring Freedom as a military intelligence officer. In 2016-2017, she deployed to Afghanistan for 13-months overseeing compliance of the Department of Defense’s multi-million dollar linguist contract. Currently, she holds the rank of Major and is a graduate-level instructor for the Command and General Staff Officer Course.
Destiny stays involved in her community, currently serving on the Board of Directors for Indianapolis Downtown Rotary. She has participated in Rotary committees for Indy Do Day, the largest volunteer service effort in the City of Indianapolis. Not one to stray from service above self, her fellow Rotarians even helped collect and mail hundreds of school supplies to her so that she could pack backpacks for Afghan children while deployed.
Growing up in Morgan County, Destiny traces her lineage to its founders—8 generations of Hoosiers. She graduated from Indiana University-Bloomington as an Army ROTC distinguished military graduate, and received her Juris Doctor from The University of Texas School of Law. Her greatest accomplishment is her family—she and her husband Oliver live in downtown Indianapolis with their two sons, Owen and Harrison.
