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.

Out and About in the Parks of Toronto

Can you see it?!  All the people and all the ponies!!!
Today there was a local celebration held in my community and it drew out so
many of the neighbours and their kids.
They had ponies to ride, lamas to pet, and even a live band!
I met this big beauty today, a 150lb girl who was as sweet as she was huge!!!
Notice that?!  Flipside Fitness, up and proud among the other flyers in the laundry mat.
My good buddy Captain Bowtie was super sweet in helping me hand out flyers today.
I must say this, Torontonians are soooooo much friendlier and respectable to those handing out flyers than Koreans in Korea, wow.  Even when we interrupted folks enjoying their picnic in the park, people were sweet in taking my flyer.  Leave it to Canadians to say thank you, nice.  I interrupt their moment, give them my flyer and then THEY say thank you.  I love this country!!!
