HOLLYWOOD STUNTWOMANbought my first motorcycle at age 17 and learned to ride it by driving it off the lot and crashing. That's how I roll," Podesta replies when asked about her drive and determination to be the best stuntwoman ever.
Raised in a farming community northwest of Sacramento, CA, Joni has dazzled us playing professional women's tackle football, wrestling, boxing, AAA softball, motorcycles, swimming, horse work, natural bodybuilding, collegiate field hockey, handcar racing and an arsenal of martial arts including a black belt in Japanese shooto.
Fortunate to work with greats Clint Eastwood, John Singleton and Jennifer Aniston, Podesta can climb, walk, run and stand with great endurance until task completion. With her pit bull attitude she's able to do whatever necessary to get the job done. She can take a fall, kick, Molotov cocktail, moving vehicle and karate chop with great panache and fire one right back at you. She looks forward to future mayhem.
