With two decades of administrative expertise to her credit, Pamela D. Price, MSA, PMP, CSM, CSPO, excels as the proprietor of Priceless Dreams, with her success cemented in her affinity for teaching. Throughout her higher education, she learned that the percentage of Americans who applied to and attended college remained considerably low at the time. Likewise, as a teacher, Dr. Price realized many of her students possessed a literacy rate below the expected level for their age range. Eager to return the kindness she received from others growing up, she resolved to establish a foundation and create opportunities for the less fortunate.
Over the course of her education, Dr. Price has accrued several degrees spanning across multiple areas of academia. Initially enrolling at Mott Community College, she obtained three associate degrees in general studies, mathematics and art. Following her departure from the aforementioned institution, she attained a Bachelor of Science in pharmaceutical science from the University of Michigan in 1997. Subsequently, Dr. Price earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in health care administration from Baker College in 2003. She continued her education with a Master of Science in health care administration from Central Michigan University in 2012, before concluding her studies with a Doctor of Business Administration from Baker College in 2020.
Dr. Price has cultivated an impressive resume by serving in multiple capacities for several agencies. In the past, she has excelled as a senior team lead for the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, a senior information technology project manager for Comerica Bank, a senior project manager and information technology consultant for TEKsystems Incorporated, and a senior technical account manager for Oracle. As chair of the board for the non-profit organization Priceless Dreams, she strategically directs a team of specialists to allocate resources, perform community outreach and establish agendas to ensure timelines as well as efficiency.
Since 2017, Dr. Price’s efforts with Priceless Dreams have provided events along with sponsorships to create an environment in which children can learn and achieve their greatest potential. She attributes her success to passion, persistence and dedication to her work. She prides herself on her ability to listen to the plights of others without prejudice or judgment. In the near future, she plans to expand the influence of her association and build upon her education, as the field of information technology is constantly changing.
