Assistant Director

Hello, 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 love to learn and am currently working towards my Doctorate Degree in Human Services and Organizational Leadership through Capella 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.  In my spare time I enjoy traveling with my family and watching my girls in gymnastics, dance, soccer, and other activities they are involved in.

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
They can't tell you when you start this job there may come a time where you find you're more comfortable surrounded by people with developmental disabilities than when you are with the general population. But it happens. - WESCO Industries Employee
Until someone has had their own experience with someone with a developmental disability, they just won't understand. - WESCO Industries Employee
