Lynn Drake was born in Eureka, CA in 1952 and moved to Portland several years later. Lynn attended University of Oregon and was 3 hours short of a degree in Public Heath when she got offered a job working in a large travel agency in Portland. She never looked back. She got her passion for travel from her Grandmother Helen and also from her immediate family who traveled extensively when she was growing up.
Over the years Lynn has traveled the world, visiting over 90 countries. All the while she continued working in the travel business. When the industry started changing several years ago Lynn decided to cut back and specialize in planning trips for clients to places they couldn’t get to without help from an experienced and well-traveled agent.
Africa had always been a favorite destination and quickly became a focus for Lynn. She and Teresa hit it off and Lynn has been “double dipping” ever since. She continues to bring many clients to Mango and also works in the Mango office doing airline tickets, itineraries and answers many questions for clients.
In her spare time, Lynn volunteers at a cat shelter, loves to knit, travel and spend time at her place in Sisters, Oregon.
