Has left acting and is now running a interior design company, with a partner, called KV Interior Design.
Her character was the only Ranger to be killed off. The reason being was that Vernon was diagnosed with leukemia and had to leave the series to undergo treatment; Saban still credited her, however, so they could assist in paying for her treatment. The treatments were fortunately successful, and Valerie is now leukemia-free. After recovering, the character was resurrected at the end of the season, and she reprised her role for a guest spot during the show's next incarnation the following season.
Despite her character re-assuming the role of the Pink Galaxy Ranger, Vernon did not return for Power Rangers Super Megaforce; instead, Melody Perkins - who took her place during the last part of Lost Galaxy - took over the role again.
