Meet DATI's Newest AT Specialist

Hello, everyone! I am Eden Melmed and I joined DATI in the Fall of 2001 as the Assistive Technology Specialist serving the New Castle County Assistive Technology Resource Center. In this role, I provide support to individuals with disabilities, their families and other members of the community by helping to identify appropriate assistive technology and supplying information and training on the technology. It is tremendously rewarding work.

Prior to joining DATI, I had been working at a pharmaceutical company as a biomedical engineer. In this position, I worked with scientists to determine their technological needs, including both hardware and software, and implemented the appropriate solutions. This experience helped expose me to the incredible world of technology that exists today, and reinforced my belief that almost anything is possible. While I enjoyed that experience, I quickly concluded that my desire is to help people and that was why I sought out DATI and abandoned the corporate world, where profits seem to be the only important objective.

After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in electrical engineering, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer and was assigned to teach in The Gambia, West Africa. After my two years there I came back to the U.S. and pursued my Masters degree in biomedical engineering from Drexel University in Philadelphia.

Everyone at DATI is committed to assisting individuals in finding technology that allows them to be more independent and productive in their lives. If there is ever a time when you, a family member or someone you know is in need of some assistance, please don't hesitate to call; we are always ready to help.
