During her second year in rehab she began taking high school classes and completed two years worth of classes during that time. After leaving rehab, she entered high school in her junior year.
She attended a junior college in San Diego majoring in biochemistry,cite web|url=http://www.glamourcon.com/interview/aria.html|title=Celebrate Aria|accessdate=2007-07-10|date=2002-12-16|publisher=glamourcon.com] while waitressing and tutoring in science and mathematics on the side, when she decided to enter modeling. She started answering newspaper ads in October, 1999, and soon began appearing on various
amateur pornography websites such as Amateur Pink, Busty Amateurs, Seductive Amateurs, Darker Pleasures and BubbleGirls.
Aimee Sweetintroduced Giovanni to glamour photographer Suze Randall, who in late May of that year shot photos of Giovanni which appeared in the September issue of "Penthouse" magazine. At the same time, she also appeared on the web site Bomis, posing clothed for a Ferrarigiveaway contest.
Around the same time that she shot the Penthouse photos, she transferred to
University of California, San Diegoas a junior transfer student intending to major in biochemistryand minor in English writing. However, she opted not to attend as she felt that the workload would not leave time for modeling; "I knew I could always come back to school, but I probably couldn't come back to modeling."
In 2001, she played Monica Snatch in the movie "Survivors Exposed", a parody of the "Survivor"
televisionseries. She also appeared on the TV dating show " Shipmates" (Episode dated November 16, 2001).
Giovanni has appeared in bondage, fetish, amateur, glamour and artistic photography. Giovanni has worked extensively with Andrew Blake, appearing in "Girlfriends", "Aria", "Blondes & Brunettes", "Justine", "Adriana" and "Naked Diva". She has appeared in softcore pornographic movies, although most of her lesbian scenes involve purely implied sexual contact. In the early part of her modeling career she made extensive use of sex toys in masturbation videos, which she has since stopped doing.
In October 2008, Giovanni appeared in the first episode of James Gunn's short-form web video series,
PG Pornplaying a role opposite Nathan Fillion[cite web|url=http://www.pgporn.tv/|title=James Gunn's PG Porn|accessdate=2008-10-09] .
