Life and career
Ganem was born in Modesto, California and raised in Torreón, Mexico along with her two younger brothers. She has Mexican and Lebanese heritage. She is a graduate of the University of San Diego. A Hollywood newcomer, Ganem's prior television work includes The Cleveland Show and Rob.
On Devious Maids, Ganem plays the positive, open-minded nineteen-year-old daughter and co-worker of Zoila Diaz (Judy Reyes) and love interest of Genevieve Delatour's (Susan Lucci's) son, Remi Delatour (Drew Van Acker). The Diazes both serve as maids to Delatours and the romance between Valentina and Remi is something that Zoila discourages.
