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.

From Sweats to Heels

Training at Hardknocks with Coach Perez.
Everyday we're hussling.
Better than yesterday.
After an afternoon of sweating my brains out, I got dolled up for a night out.
You can take the girl out but you can't take the fighter out of her.
I tried my best to be very lady-like though.  
Tonight was all about luxury and fine dining.
Enjoying a stunning night out surrounded by dinosaurs was awesome as was having the event in a museum.  I've never really noticed before just how beautiful the R.O.M. is.
My date and I took a sneaky run up the stairs to explore some parts of the museum.
I'll definitely have to revisit the R.O.M.; it's been way too long.
I felt like I was in the movie "A Night at the Museum", sneaking around the place.
