Starla is initially hired by G.O.B. to be a "business model" for the Bluth Company, a job which consists of wearing a costume and holding a "Solid as a rock" sign at board meetings and press events. She later works as an assistant to G.O.B. and Michael.

Starla often proves to be quite incompetent as a secretary, thinking "photo copies" means 4x6 size prints. She claims that she had an affair with producer Quincy Jones, a claim backed up with the display of several of his gold records along the walls of Starla's house but disputed by spokespersons for Mr. Jones.
