Valerie ChenAssociate Editor, Digital
Valerie Chen is the Associate Editor, Digital of TravelAge West, Family Getaways and Explorer magazines. Though her ship-to address has always included a Southern California zip code, each and every new destination she visits — no matter the distance — somehow manages to exude a familiar “home sweet home” feeling. She will admit that tasting as much local food as possible is of utmost importance when traveling, and the more adventurous her trips, the better.
When not writing or planning out her next voyage, Valerie typically has her nose in a book or a paintbrush in her hand. Follow along on Twitter @ValerieChenTAW and Instagram @valerielily.
