Denice Rochelle

Founder/Director, Program Architect, Curator of Experiences, Adventure Ambassador

Denice was born in Washington State and thinks she came out of the shoot resonating with Nature’s vibe. An adventure spirit who calls herself a water person, Denice has always been drawn to animals and the Natural World. She grew up with The Pacific Northwest outdoors as her home, inspiration, school, and playground. As Founder and Visionary of The Bronze Chapter, she enjoys creating recreational and educational opportunities that help more people of color skillfully and confidently go about changing the face of the outdoors as James Edward Mills talks about in his book The Adventure Gap. Denice created The Bronze Chapter as a ramp leading to paths where underrepresented communities of color can collectively rewrite their outdoor narratives through discovery and remarkable experiences.
