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.

Discovering My Niche was Coaching

Back in Korea I taught my fair share of fighters even well before I opened up my own boxing club.  I've always been about girl power but in Korea I was more so about it because of Korean stereotypes.  I felt like a pioneer, paving a way for the next generation of female fighters in that country.
I loved working with the females and I loved working with the younger fighters too.
But when I made my own company, Flipside Fitness, that's when I really found my niche.
