Wells was born in San Anotnio, Texas. She attended Memorial High School in Victoria, Texas, where she was active in speech and debate and graduated as salutatorian. She graduated from University of Texas at Austin in 2010 with degrees in Plan II Honors and Radio-Television-Film. While attending college, she was a cast member of Esther's Follies, Austin's long running musical satire show where she performed in sketches and as a magician's assistant.
She worked as an editor and did motion graphic for a brief time before becoming an actress. Her parents apparently named her Noël due to being born two days before Christmas.
Wells is an avid photographer and has had her works featured at exhibitions and the literary magazine Oxford American.
In 2010, Wells moved to Los Angeles and performed at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre with the sketch team "New money". She has appeared in Collegehumor.com and Cracked.com videos and is also known for her own sketch and parody videos.
In 2013, Wells joined the cast of Saturday Night Live during it's 39th season as a featured player along with some of her fellow Upright Citizen Brigade performers. Wells did not return for a second season.
Wells has made guest appearances on television programs such as The Aquabats! Super Show! and Comedy Bang! Bang! as well as doing recurring voice work on Wander Over Yonder and Hulu's The Awesomes.
