Elizabeth Price is a scientist-editor-administrator who received her B.S. in meteorology from Penn State in 1989. Upon graduation, Elizabeth worked as an editorial assistant for Penn State’s College of Earth and Mineral Sciences. In 1992 she became an editor for the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in its test development department.

During her eight years in this role at the ABIM, Elizabeth supported the development and production of certification and recertification examinations in internal medicine and several subspecialties. After leaving the Board in 2000, Elizabeth worked in concert with acclaimed psychometrician Steven M. Downing, Ph.D., for 11 years to develop and maintain high-stakes medical board certification exams in several specialties.

In late 2010, Elizabeth was recruited to become the inaugural Executive Director of Graduate Education Administration at Penn State, providing administrative oversight of Graduate Council, the legislative body that comprises Graduate Faculty representation from each unit that offers graduate degrees.

Additionally, in 2011 Elizabeth began managing business operations for an enterprise she co-owned with her husband, the Callao Café and Market. Elizabeth left Penn State in December 2014 to dedicate herself to operational management for the growing enterprise.

After the Callao Café and Market closed in early 2016, owing to her co-owner’s health issues, Elizabeth switched gears to focus on undergraduate education at Penn State, where she administratively manages all aspects of overall student interaction for two large-enrollment business core courses in the Smeal College of Business.

Reared in Connecticut and having spent nine years in the Philadelphia area while working at the ABIM, Elizabeth enjoys living in a university town in the middle of nowhere—State College, Pennsylvania—with her husband, David, and their two dogs.
