After she was "discovered" while attending a local wrestling event, Valerie Wyndham debuted on March 30, 2002 for the Golden State Championship Wrestling independent promotion as the manager of Pinoy Boy, who she promptly betrayed by berating him after he was defeated by Scott Lost and then leaving with Lost. She appeared for several other promotions in Southern California before her family moved across the country to Orlando, Florida when she was sixteen. Wyndham developed the character of SoCal Val, a wealthy, petulant, ruthless heel.
In addition to working for multiple independent promotions, Wyndham has appeared with World Wrestling Entertainment, modelling a John Cena t-shirt on WWE.com and appearing on WWE SmackDown! as part of a vignette featuring Luther Reigns.

Wyndham continues to work for promotions throughout Southern California, most prominently Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, where she was the commissioner at one point. It was there, when Joey Ryan Superkicked her in the face, she developed a fear of feet (kayfabe). This became a prominent feature in her storyline with Francine Fournier, while resulted in a Kiss My Foot Match. Wyndham lost. A video clip of Val being forced to kiss Francine's foot is on YouTube.

In July 2006, Valerie was contacted by Playboy about doing a spread for the magazine. She commented about it on her MySpace blog, saying: "It's a very serious thing to consider and the jury is still out on how I am going to handle this one. I've spoken to the people in my life whose opinions I value most, and each has been very supportive. For that I am grateful....but this is one I'm going to have to decide all on my own." She would end up declining the offer.
In August of 2006, SoCal Val officially signed with TNA - which means she will appear more frequently on television, and be involved in more storylines.
