With a father as a pilot, Valerie Grubb began traveling at the age of four. She and her mom took their first overseas vacation together more than 20 years ago, and have logged over 300,000 miles (and counting) since.  Throughout the last 20 years, they have visited destinations such as Thailand, France, Australia, China, and Cambodia.

In addition to writing her blog, Travel with Aging Parents, Grubb is the principal of Val Grubb & Associates, Ltd., where she works with mid-range and large companies in the U.S., Asia, Europe, South America, and Central Eastern Europe as an operations and leadership consultant.  Prior to launching Val Grubb & Associates, Ltd., she served as the vice president of strategic operations and initiatives for NBC Universal.  She holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Kettering University, and obtained an M.B.A. from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business.

A true renaissance woman, Grubb is passionate about traveling the world and spending time with her family.  Originally from Indiana, Grubb currently lives in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Planes, Canes, and Automobiles is her first book.


Planes, Canes, and Automobiles will be available for purchase on and through other booksellers on October 6, 2015.
