As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Asia February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I'm at now, living in the land of the happy people.

The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love.

Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Early Work and Late Training

Spent a good chunk of my day doing computer work, like preparing stuff for Hulk's in Korea and responding to fan mail and messages from promoters.
In the late afternoon I headed over to Clancy's for some training and a chat with the manager regarding the upcoming fights and Japan.
In the late evening I then went to System for some weight training 
-- shoulders, triceps and chest...and of course chats and hugs from friends.
Returned home super late, around 10:30pm, and was greeted to this -- police tape around the fire exit at the other end of my hall and a notice in the elevator about some dude who attacked one of the residents.  Two reminders on just how ghetto my area is.
