Beatrice (Bea) Mohr was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. She attended the University of Tennessee and graduated with a BA in History. She has also attended the Hawaii Travel School in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Bea was fortunate to have a family who loves to travel, and she has traveled extensively throughout the US and Canada. She has been to every state in the union except for Alaska. (She’s waiting until she turns 60 to take that trip…)
After college, she taught high school for one year, but discovered she didn’t like it, so she packed up and moved to Hawaii. While in Hawaii she met her husband! She lived there for five years. She began working for a travel agent in 1986, both in the office and in outside sales. Also while still in Hawaii, she worked for a travel agency on Pearl Harbor, working with the US Navy and international countries as their ships pulled into the harbor.
She has traveled all the way from Sydney to Hong Kong, and many points in between.
As a Navy wife, Bea has lived in Monterey, California, Newport, Rhode Island, Charleston, South Carolina and Annapolis, Maryland. Once her husband left the Navy they lived in St. Charles, Missouri before moving to the Lynchburg area. They have lived in this area for 14 years.
Living and working for an agency in Lynchburg has given Bea the opportunity to travel to many cities in Europe and throughout the Caribbean. She plans on adding more and more cities each year.
Bea has been an agent for 27 years, and has seen many changes to the travel industry. From refundable to non-refundable tickets, to travel agents no longer getting paid by the airlines for their services, to the Internet explosion. But Bea believes the industry will survive because service is key: and in today’s society, service is something you don’t get from the airlines or the Internet.
