Val was hired to work as the warehouse foreman after the old staff quit after winning the lottery. Darryl awkwardly tries to flirt with her for most of the season in a similar way that Andy did with Erin. Val had a boyfriend named Brandon who owned his own restaurant. Darryl and Val finally get together after Val breaks up with her boyfriend.
Darryl feels that the relationship has grown stale and decides to end it by planting the idea of breaking up in her head and putting on weight. When Kevin, Phyllis and Nellie discover that Val dumped Darryl, they blindside her and start praising Darryl. Val then gets back with Darryl, much to his chagrin.
She later appears at Dwight and Angela's wedding reception seen with Darryl in the Finale.
