Hi, my name is Deidra Brown and I am the Assistant Director for WESCO Industries. I have been a part of the WESCO team since 2007 and have been in my role as the Assistant Director since 2011. I have a Master’s Degree in Human Services from Bellevue University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Human Services from Buena Vista University. I grew up on a farm outside of Schleswig and graduated from Denison High School. My husband, Nick and I live on an acreage outside of Deloit. We have 4 daughters, Kenzie, Cameron, Hailey, and Whitley, 2 dogs, Chevy and Ella, and a cat named Oreo.
Seeing so many individuals succeed in life and being able to transition back into the community is the best part of my job.- WESCO Industries Employee
