Dr. Jennifer Leggour

Leggour, is an Ocean City native, who currently resides locally with her husband and children. She graduated from Stephen Decatur High School, then obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Salisbury University. She moved to Baltimore to complete her education and training, knowing that she would return to Ocean City one day to raise a family at the beach. She attended Loyola College, and finished her first Doctor of Psychology program in 2000. After graduation, she immediately moved back to the Eastern Shore and has practiced as a psychologist for 20 years.  During that time, she expanded her family and her career, finding WYFCS along the way. She has been employed at WYFCS for 11 years, serving as the clinical director for eight years. While she has always valued the science and study of human behavior, she is just as passionate about humanitarian efforts and the essence of giving back to the community.

Leggour believes in the mission of the organization, which has assisted thousands of people by providing mental health services, advocating for abused and neglected children, finding resources for those in challenging situations, and offering many outreach programs to youth within the community.

“On behalf of the WYFCS Board of Directors, I want our community to know how thrilled and fortunate we are to welcome Dr. Jennifer Leggour into her role as our new Executive Director,” said WYFCS Board of Directors President Robin Walter.
“Her experience and demeanor make her a terrific match for her selection into this professional role. She has already exhibited her leadership capabilities and our board members look forward to working with her and supporting her as she enhances and grows WYFCS. She is fully committed to the organization and is dedicated to ‘Helping People Shine.’”
