Greetings!! My name is DeQuel Robinson, a native of Mobile, AL, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology, a Master’s Degree in Sport Management, and a former Pro Wheelchair Basketball Athlete. I have lived with an Ambulatory Disability since the fall of 2008. But that didn’t stop me from thriving ahead and tapping into my purpose. After being confined to a wheelchair, I was able to create a path for myself through sports and fitness. I got involved in wheelchair activities and earned a wheelchair basketball scholarship to The University of Alabama. During my athletic career at the University of Alabama, I became a 2x Intercollegiate National Champion. Soon after finishing my Master’s, I furthered my career in wheelchair basketball by taking an offer to play professionally overseas in France. After completing my time overseas, I moved back to the great city of Mobile, Al to fulfill my purpose. I'm currently a Program Supervisor for Mobile Parks & Rec, Track Coach/Personal Trainer, Motivational Speaker & Mentor within the community. I’m honored to be in position to create a better avenue for others to have the best experiences through any unexpected challenges of life.
AdaptFocus creates a safe space and opportunities for the kids of all ages.
