Competing in two seasons of NBC's American Gladiators, Venom was a specialist at The Wall and Hang Tough, striking fear into many a Contender.

Chicago born Venom, has been a competitive gymnast since the age of seven. She graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology.
