Share joined Vixen in 1987, replacing Pia Maiocco, and remained with the band until 1991. After leaving Vixen, she formed the supergroup, Contraband, releasing only one album. When Vixen reunited in 1997, she had no interest in coming back, as she was playing in her husband's band, Bubble.
In 2012, Share reunited with her former Vixen bandmates, Roxy Petrucci and Janet Gardner, along with Gina Stile to form a new band originally known as "VXN" and now using simply their names as the band name of JanetShareRoxyGina (or JSRG for short). The band began performing shows in late 2012 and went on tour with the Monsters of Rock cruise in 2013. Late in 2013 JRSG changed their name back to Vixen in accordance with the wishes of founding member and guitarist Jan Kuehnemund who was unable to be part of the reformed band due to her battle with cancer and shock passing on 10 October 2013.
After sitting in on bass with the Quireboys during the 2014 Monsters of Rock Cruise (due to the absence of their regular bassist), she was invited to join Joe Elliott's Down 'n' Outz on their December 2014 UK tour.
In addition to her musical career, Ross is also a life coach, specialising in confidence-building, with particular reference to self-promotion via video, with her 'Video Rockstar University' programme, and a motivational course, "MESH". Her programmes are predominantly targeted at self-employed businesswomen.
She has also published a book of hip knitting designs, Punk Knits published by Stewart, Tabori and Chang.
