Marley Behrendt  Educational Content Specialist

Marley has a Bachelor of Science in Biology focusing on Genetics and Animal Development from Penn State Behrend. After graduating, she discovered she did not like lab work as much as she thought she would. She now uses her skills developed in the sciences as the primary fact checker at izzit.org.

Marley loves working with both teachers and young people. On the weekends she teaches Sunday school to the elementary grades at her church. She believes in talking to children on their level while also challenging them to expand their minds and ask the important questions that can sometimes be uncomfortable to examine and answer.

She loves learning new words, math, baking, her family, and her irascible pet cat Charlotte.
