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.

Rockin' it Out with Fabulous Friends

Am in love with my 80's high top jeans, seriously.
I was heading out to the Bovine tonight for a friend's live concert and I know enough about the place to know that it's like a throwback to the 80's and 90's whenever I go there.
Before the concert though, I met up with other friends -- a friend who is writing a book about me.  We had book talk to discuss so that was really exciting for me.  He's got such awesome ideas and it's pretty cool to see how it's all coming together.
Then we all headed to the Bovine to see a friend of ours -- a friend we all went to public school with.  Childhood friends are the bestest of best.
Rocked out to my buddy rocking it out on stage.
He's always been all about his music as long as I can remember and so it's great to see how he's kept up with it and is just as in love with as I remember.
