IDDC Names New Executive Director

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

The Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council is happy to announce Brooke Lovelace Hundling will be joining the Council as executive director.

Lovelace comes to the Iowa DD Council from the Center for Disabilities and Development, Iowa’s University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, where she was a program coordinator of Iowa’s Money Follows the Person program. 

“We are excited to welcome Brooke to the Iowa DD Council. She brings a wealth of knowledge in the area of disabilities program implementation,” said Steve Crew, chair of the Council. “Brooke’s leadership will further our Council’s effectiveness in the creation of innovative practices to provide greater community access for individuals with developmental disabilities. It will also help us continue to establish effective networks for collaboration.”

Upon her arrival to the Council, Lovelace looks to gain an understanding of the Council’s top priorities and help make progress on its five-year goals of advocacy and system change. “I believe now, more than ever, it is so important that people with disabilities and their families have the tools, resources and knowledge to successfully advocate and take action to create change so they can live the lives they want,” said Lovelace.
