She’s been serving in that capacity for over a decade, but is also known for her work with various universities.
Finding Wealth and Popularity in the Media through Professional Football
How rich is Stephania Bell? As of early-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is at $3 million, mostly earned through success as an injury analyst and through her physical therapy work as well as her writings. She reportedly earns a salary of $100,000 annually for her work with ESPN, so as she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
A Physical Therapist
Stephania attended The Madeira School, and after matriculating went to study for her AB at Princeton University – she was a French major, and did a thesis about “La Comedia Humaine”. During her time at Princeton, she worked as a part of the school’s athletic training department, then after graduating, she then went on to study for a Master of Science degree in physical therapy from the University of Miami, which she completed in 1991.
Stephania started her formal working career as a teacher at the University of Kansas and stayed there for the next five years, during which her expertise in physical injury and therapy found a lot of use, especially with other fantasy football owners who started coming to her often for advice. With this encouragement, she decided to start a blog about football injuries, with her friends advising her that her expertise was marketable, especially since the world of professional football was somewhat vague at the time when it came to treating injuries. She started to do reviews of player injuries, check past injury history, and looked at player’s training activities to determine the state and nature of their ailments. She then consulted with other experts such as orthopedic surgeons to produce well-grounded predictions about future player activity. Her work didn’t stop at football, and soon she started blogging about injuries of other high profile athletes, such as Alex Rodriguez and Tiger Woods.
Doing the Injury Report
Her expertise would continue to boost her popularity, and soon many media outlets would approach her to work as a part of their sports department. She became an injury analyst for XM Radio, Rotowire, and KFFL, and then began working as a part of ESPN in 2007, for which she has become a regular columnist. She also does blogging work on injury analysis for numerous players in the National Football League (NFL). Aside from his, she works with on-air journalists, and is usually a guest for breaking news and injury analysis.

She even bought a residence in Connecticut near ESPN Studios, and her ESPN blogs are also posted on the website of the American Physical Therapy Association.
