Store Manager: Marie Eslick
Tenacity. If we were to pick one word to describe Marie Eslick (at least for the purposes of this bio) it's tenacity. You see, back in 2016, just before Marie interviewed at Orvis, she broke several bones in both feet and ankles after falling from a ladder while hanging Christmas lights. She likes to call it her ‘Clark Griswold moment.’ But even that didn’t stop her from flying to Vermont (and even renting a car) while on crutches with both legs still in braces, to make it to her interview. It’s her determination that makes Marie the ideal individual to be at the helm of Orvis Huntsville, where on any given day, she’s solving problems, generating ideas, and supporting her team of Associates.
A veteran retailer and born traveler (the southwest is her favorite destination), Marie loves meeting new customers, sharing stories, and helping them plan their adventures, and, when she can’t get out there herself, living vicariously through their experiences. Marie’s dedication and genuine passion for her work ensures she always gets the job done. Incidentally, she probably never should have climbed that ladder in the first place, as she has a self-professed fear of heights. But like we said, when a challenge presents itself, Maries takes it on with tenacity.
