Daphne Mallory is an immigrant entrepreneur and producer, family business owner and philanthropist.  She is the founder of the Daphne Mallory Foundation, and host of "Family Business with Daphne"​ on 103.9 FM KDKI.

She was born in Liberia, West Africa. Her father was sent to Oxford University by his company which paved the way for her to attend school in London after his return, as a child, and alone. She learned to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and leadership skills to survive in three different countries: Liberia, England and the United States.

She leverages the media to tell stories about entrepreneurs as vessels of love, the value of senior citizens, and the power of family business. She writes for Entrepreneur Magazine, The Huffington Post, Times News Magic Valley and Idaho Family Magazine. She appears on television and radio, and speaks at conferences. Billboard Magazine described Daphne as "Engaging Fans... Forging a New Path."​ She has been featured on ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC, The Dr. Oz Show, Self Magazine, Woman's Day, Essence Magazine, Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, Brown Alumni Magazine, Black Enterprise, and more.

Her mission is to eradicate poverty through quality television productions and philanthropy. Daphne believes that entire communities can turn around: through family businesses and entrepreneurship education; when economically disadvantaged students can obtain a college education; when we implement Real Community Development goals; and when we honor senior citizens.

She is a member of Rotary International.
