Scott joins WYFCS

Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services welcomes Tiffany Scott as its new youth programs coordinator.

She will oversee programming for adolescent programs and the Berlin Youth Club. The coordinator also organizes cultural, educational and social activities for the youth throughout the year. She will also organize youth activities for various town events and manage a volunteer corps to help with youth activities.

Scott comes to WYFCS from the Worcester County Health Department where she worked as a community health outreach worker in its Patient Centered Home Program. From this experience, she developed her love for public health and helping others.

In 2017, Scott took on the role of a community health educator with WCHD’s Chronic Disease and Tobacco Prevention Team. During her time with prevention as the Healthiest Maryland Business/ Worksite Wellness coordinator, she was able to further her passion for holistic health and wellness through community partnerships.

Scott is also a CDC-certified diabetes prevention coach and enjoys empowering participants to become their best self through nutrition and physical activity.

She earned her bachelor’s degree from Salisbury University in 2015 with an area of concentration in community health and health education.

Currently, she is a full-time student at Maryland University of Integrative Health working toward her dream of becoming a certified clinical nutritionist. She hopes to one day create a healthier community through the power of nutrition.
