Store Manager: Mary Ellen McGlothlin
Mary Ellen is a native Texan who has spent the last 30 years enjoying living in many different places—getting to know the land and the people of vastly different areas in the great USA. After teaching French and Spanish for years, Mary Ellen shifted her attention to retail management and worked for Coldwater Creek for seven years prior to joining Orvis in summer 2014. The connection to the outdoors and nature (as well as a daughter employed at the company!) brought her to Orvis, and, after a successful initial year in Birmingham, she cant wait to see whats ahead in Plano!
Fishing Manager: Steven Palmer
Steven is a native Texan who grew up fly fishing for anything that swam in Texas warm water—before throwing a fly at carp was cool. Steven has since fished extensively out West and enjoys chasing redfish and speckled trout on the Texas coast. When he is not fishing, he enjoys everything outdoors, including waterfowl hunting, camping, and hiking. Retail is new to Steven, but he is excited about the challenge and turning his passion into his work.
