Valerie is one of Claire Dunphy's old friends who makes an appearance in "Moon Landing".

Valerie and Claire used to work at the same place before Claire and Phil married and had kids. She and Claire meet up at a restaurant to catch up on each other's lives. Valerie had stayed working and now has a great career, which makes Claire feel like she missed out when she had decided to have a family. Valerie is invited to Claire's house since Claire wants to impress her with them, but things end up going wrong when everyone acts weird and Valerie leaves, causing Claire to get upset with her family and leave the house in fury. Shortly afterwards Claire realizes that she is the lucky one, and is happy to have a family.
