Meet the World Travel Center Staff


Jan Bolin, Owner



Jan started her career as a travel agent in 1976 after completing the 9-month Travel and Tourism course at Brown Mackie College here in Salina.  Jan “retired” in 1985 to stay home and be a full-time mother.  But when the “travel bug” bites you, it’s hard to leave the field permanently.  Jan went back to work as a part-time travel agent from 1992 to 1995.  Then came the boom in computer technology.  She was able to work at home as an outside sales agent for World Travel Center and still be involved with her children’s school activities. 

In April, 2004, Jan was persuaded to return to her original full-time position as a travel agent in our office.  In addition to her role as full-time wife and travel agent, Jan is active in her church.  Jan has a keen eye for detail, and loves working on groups, cruises, honeymoon planning, and vacation packages.

Jan & husband Mark purchased World Travel Center in September 2017.


Betty Pelzel, Agent



Betty joined us in 2012 with over 30 years of sales experience.  She previously worked in the hotel & hospitality industry and has taken more than 20 different cruises. 

She now shares her extensive cruise knowledge & love of travel with her clients.  Her enthusiasm for travel is contagious!




Sarah Buechel,

Group Coordinator



Sarah graduated from KU in 1978 with a BA degree in Environmental Science.  She began her travel career organizing group tours and cruises in Lawrence, KS.  She happily traveled through Europe, Greece & Eqypt, as well as several US destinations, and in 1984 earned her CTC (Certified Travel Counselor) designation. After relocating to the Pacific Northwest, she worked in marketing & office management in the life insurance industry.

As our very capable group coordinator since January 2007, she quietly works her magic in the background making the rest of the group department look good.
