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.

F-I-N-A-L-L-Y got My Hair Did

After almost four months of being delinquent with getting my hair done, I finally was able to
make the trek out to Whitby to get my hair cut and dyed.
 Looking fresh and feeling fabulous, I then made the trek back to Toronto.

 Now to maintain this and not let another four months go by before I get it done again!!!
I posted this picture on Instagram and Facebook after getting into a chat with some dude waiting at the Go Train station for the same train I was taking.  He had asked me what my job was.  I told him I was a pro boxer and he responded by saying I was "too pretty to be a boxer".  That's my pet peeve, people who make it sound as if being ugly is a prerequisite for being a fighter.  I've yet to meet a physically ugly fighter and, come to think of it, my top four picks for the prettiest women here in Canada are ALL fighters.
