After being crowned Miss Georgia in 1985, Mohr used her scholarship winnings to study meteorology in Houston where she interned at FOX TV station KRIV. From there she went on to KTVK/Phoenix in 1989, where she was a morning meteorologist for Good Morning Arizona. After a dozen years in the desert, San Francisco's CBS O&O KPIX hired her as Chief Meteorologist, where she served from 2001 through 2007.

Entering her first pageant at the suggestion of a fellow UGA student, Mohr won the Miss Columbus 1985 title. This win made her eligible to enter the Miss Georgia pageant in June 1985. Mohr won the competition on Saturday, June 22, 1985. She earned more than $3,500 in scholarship money and other prizes from the state pageant.

As Miss Georgia, her activities included public appearances across the state of Georgia. Mohr was Georgia's representative at the Miss America 1986 pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in September 1985. In computer modelling that successfully predicted that Susan Akin would be named Miss America, Mohr's odds were set at 22 to 1. Mohr was not a Top-10 finalist for the national crown. Mohr's reign as Miss Georgia lasted until she crowned her successor, Marlesa Ball, as Miss Georgia 1986 in June 28, 1986.
