On July 1, Daphni Steffin became the newest member of the MIH Board of Directors.
Steffin is the Chief Product Officer at iCareManager (iCM), a software vendor for providers of long-term supports. Her 16-year career in the
intellectual and developmental disability (I/DD) field started on Maryland’s Eastern Shore as a student director of Best Buddies at Salisbury University. At The Arc Baltimore, Daphni initiated an Assistive Technology program and connected more than 500 people with different kinds of assistive technology to live, work and learn more independently.
She is certified in Assistive Technology through California State University, Northridge and provides consulting on this and other topics in addition to her full-time position at iCM. She has experience in developing programs, strategic planning and assessing technology needs at micro and macro levels. She has a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix and was awarded the Maryland Daily Record’s Leading Women Award. She volunteers as a member of the Standing Committee at her local Arc chapter.
“Daphni is a leader in the Maryland intellectual and developmental disabilities field,” said MIH Executive Director Tim Wiens. “We are excited to bring her wealth of experience in the technology to MIH and our Board. She is an ambitious professional and excels in her role as the Chief Product Officer at iCM.”
Steffin hopes to bring her passion for helping people achieve their goals through the use of high- and low-tech technology to MIH. She is committed to empowering people to live as independently and fully as possible.
“I am thrilled to join the board of MIH. I have been involved in the evolution of the I/DD world throughout my career and am excited to be a part of the movement to help people live even more independent lives in inclusive communities,” she said. “My experience includes supporting people and organizations with technology, and I hope to bring this expertise to the table. I am grateful for this opportunity to contribute to greater outcomes for Marylanders with disabilities.”
Her hobbies include refinishing old furniture and spending quality time with her elementary school-aged son.
