Our founder and president Dr. Marla J. Albertie, PhD, has a passion for learning and development. One day as she was driving down the road a thought came to her about how do teenagers find out about this awesome field she is getting her PhD in, I/O Psychology. She wrote the notes in her phone, went home, and did some research. As she discovered, there was no program out there she could find that introduces I/O Psychology to teenagers as a career field. Thus I/O for Teens Inc. was born.

Dr. Marla and her founding board members created and continue to create strong curricula and products to help teenagers develop the transferable skills they need to be successful in the field of I/O Psychology and life.
