Valerie Spencer first appeared when Luke Spencer began to exhibit strange behavior that his loved ones suspected was rooted in his past. Bobbie didn't recall much of her early years with her parents and suggested that the eldest of the Spencer siblings might be able to shed some light on Luke's troubling behavior. However, Bobbie had lost touch with her sister and had no idea where to find her. Eventually, Lulu and Tracy found an address for Patricia in Pennsylvania and were surprised when a young woman named Valerie answered the door.
Valerie was Patricia's daughter and revealed that her mother was in a nursing home because Patricia suffered from multiple sclerosis. Valerie was shocked to discover that she had family because all her life, it had just been her and her mother -- Valerie's father had walked out on Patricia before Valerie's birth.
Meanwhile, Luke had also made contact with Valerie and held her hostage at gunpoint until Valerie told him where Patricia was. Lulu and Dante returned to the apartment to talk to Valerie and found her injured. Valerie explained what had happened, so everyone raced to the nursing home to save Patricia before Luke got to his sister. Luckily, they were able to save Patricia from Luke's diabolical plans. Patricia decided that it was time for the truth and returned to Port Charles with Bobbie to visit their old family home and talk about the horrific night that Luke had killed Lena and Tim Spencer.
Valerie caught up with her mother at the home where Patricia and her siblings had grown up, but their reunion was cut short because Patricia's weak heart gave out, and Patricia died surrounded by her daughter and siblings. Valerie was devastated and blamed Luke, so she went to the hospital were Luke had been admitted because he'd suffered a psychotic break when his past and present had collided. Valerie was determined to kill Luke, but Dante and Lulu stopped her.
Dante convinced Valerie to stay in Port Charles. As time passed, Valerie developed feelings for Dante. Lulu picked up on her cousin's crush on Dante, which caused friction between Dante and Lulu. Tensions mounted between Lulu and Valerie when Valerie expressed an interest in police work and took an administrative job at the police station. Valerie had a degree in criminology and wanted to become a police officer, so Dante supported Valerie in pursuing her dreams. Dante and Valerie grew closer as Dante and Lulu's marriage slowly began to crumble.
Eventually, Dante and Valerie gave in to temptation and slept together when Dante mistakenly believed that Lulu had run away for a romantic vacation with Dillon. The affair didn't last long because Dante decided to focus on fixing his broken marriage for the sake of Lulu and Dante's son, Rocco. Heartbroken, Valerie decided to pick up the pieces and enlisted with the police academy. Lulu was furious when she learned about the affair and turned to her ex-lover Johnny Zacchara for help in getting Valerie kicked out of the police academy.
Johnny framed Valerie to make it appear that she'd been accepting bribes and had helped him escape from jail. Things reached a head when Valerie realized that the man she had befriended was an escaped convict. Johnny was forced to take action to keep Valerie from turning him in, and he dragged her at gunpoint to a cabin in the woods, where he left her tied up. Afterwards, Johnny called to let Lulu know where Valerie was. Lulu raced to rescue her cousin, but Valerie had accidentally knocked over a candle during her efforts to break free of the ropes binding her to the chair.
Lulu arrived in time to save Valerie from certain death, but Valerie blamed Lulu for what had happened because Lulu had enlisted Johnny's help. Lulu deeply regretted what she'd done, and with time, Valerie forgave Lulu. Valerie moved on from Dante when she met Jordan Ashford's ex-brother-in-law Curtis Ashford. After Valerie graduated from the police academy, Lulu attended Valerie's surprise graduation party.
Shortly after graduating from the police academy, Valerie offered to help Nathan hunt down a serial killer stalking the halls of General Hospital. During the investigation, Valerie had a close encounter with the killer when she found a unique cufflink that the killer had dropped in Finn's lab. The killer knocked Valerie out and retrieved the incriminating piece of evidence, but Valerie was able to describe it, which gave the police their first clue to the killer's identity.
Meanwhile, things heated up between Valerie and Curtis when they consummated their relationship. Valerie's only concern about Curtis was his friendship with Hayden because Valerie felt that Hayden took advantage of Curtis' loyalty.
Some time later, at Metro Court, Valerie joined Curtis at the bar. When Curtis went to get a coffee, Valerie picked up his phone and was shocked when she saw a picture of Morgan's evidence folder that had been on her desk. Valerie confronted Curtis about the pictures when he returned. He tried to explain, but Valerie was furious that he'd tried to play her for a fool. Valerie realized that Jordan had been right about Curtis, and she walked away.
Curtis later proposed that he and Valerie watch football after her shift was over. He wanted her to give him an opportunity to apologize. He admitted he'd messed up. Valerie accused him of putting her career in jeopardy. Curtis advised that he no longer worked for Julian and wanted to make things right between them. Valerie told him they were done, and she walked away.
