Patrice “Rice” Ermilio began her Outward Bound career as an apprentice in the fall of 2017. Outdoor education brought her through many states until she built her nest at CBOBS. Rice currently serves as the People and Culture Coordinator where she works to build and support the CBOBS community. What Rice loves most about OB is the impact it has made on her mindset about challenge. If it is hard to do, it’s probably worth it.
Rice enjoys scanning the forest for mushrooms, sunrise cowboy coffee, and paddling in a fleet. Rumor has it she once saw a monkey on the Potomac.
