As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. 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 returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am 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.

I Always Have Korea on My Brain

I am forever grateful to be here in Canada but you better believe at least once a day I have those "I wonder if..." moments where I wonder how things would be if I stayed in Korea and stayed at my club.
It's not designed or being ran as I would have had it but I've learned to bite my tongue.
There's so much that could be done with it.... it could be so much more than it already is.
But it's not my place to say anything.  I just have to trust that Snickers knows what he's doing.  God knows I sometimes wonder what the hell I'm doing here in Canada especially when I think of all that I left in Korea.  People have NO idea!!!

Now remember WHY you left. And how happy and free you felt coming back to Canada. It's understandable having those feelings, for what you've lost, the gym you owned. But you are gaining back much more: yourself, your safety and freedom from a toxic relationship. Now go enjoy your day!! :-)
