Valerie was first introduced in Kidsboro, Part 2. She coerced her younger brother, Nelson to create a pungent liquid and created a scandal to seize the position of mayor. Even though she was caught, she did not learn her lesson.
In Anger Mismanagement, she took credit for a homecoming float despite the fact she did no work herself. She was also arrogant toward Brad Ralph but was later flattered that he had a crush on her. She appeared another time, pulling various pranks on her substitute teacher, Katrina Meltsner to drive her away. When that did not work, she filed a petition to have her removed.
Much later on, Valerie befriended Jules Kendall to get Jules to buy her things on Jules's dad's credit card. When Jules insisted she did not want to rent a limo for her party, Valerie resorted to blackmail to make Jules pay for whatever she desired. She was ultimately caught in her schemes. Even after that, she continued to bully Jules.
After sending all of her FaceBase followers to cyber-bully a classmate who insulted her painting, Valerie is punished. Her punishment? A trip in the Inspiration Station to visit her own mind. She learns that she has allowed her mind to be overtaken by lies. Valerie realizes she has been struggling with feeling like a failure, unloved, and worthless. While in the station, she verbally defeats the lies. Whit tells her that bullying other kids will not make her feel better. She decides to pursue her love of painting.
