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.

New Found Friends and Reunited Ones

 Little Balboa among all my sprawled out clothes, wondering what the heck was happening.
 Ended up taking him on the subway and bus, out to the High Park area.
That's love right there -- my girl, my man, and my buddy.
Thanks to one of my bestest of best gal pals for helping me out today!
Balboa made a new four-legged friend today.  
 Coco and Balboa, new possible BFFs.
The Polish Princess and me, of course BFFs.  I love this blonde; she's pretty awesome.
I know that her breaking up with her man means she's upset and hurt but it means I have her back.  It's a bittersweet situation.
