People and Culture Coordinator
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.
Gracemarie grew up in NY/NJ with a love for day-hiking in areas from the Delaware Water Gap to the Hudson Valley. Shortly after graduating from Bucknell University, she backpacked from NH into Maine with Outward Bound. The courage and confidence she gained through that course was instrumental to her success as a Special Agent with the U.S. Secret Service and in every challenging role she has undertaken since. Gracemarie has visited 42 states and 7 foreign countries, enjoys growing in her faith, trying new GF recipes, solving puzzles, and researching ancestry. Her greatest adventure is with her husband as they parent four amazing young women. “Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear.” ~ Mark Twain
