Libby Partain – Former Chairman of the Board

“My 30-year relationship with DMC has been an incredible journey. When my second child was born, my world was turned upside down. My beautiful baby boy, a preemie, was born deaf and with heart defects. I needed help and DMC was there for me. From teaching us the basics of sign language during the first years of his life to multiple interventions for the hearing impaired as he went through high school, college and graduate school. They were a Godsend and in those years I found my calling. I have served DMC as an outspoken parent advocate, a community organizer, a political liaison, and as a board member and now as Chairman of the Board. I love DMC because it is who I am and what I do…like family.”
