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.

Korea on the Brain but My Eyes Full of Canadian Greatness

Headed down to the Distillery District for a mid morning coffee and caught glimpse of them setting up what will soon be the most beautiful Christmas tree in the entire city of Toronto.
Walking back to my area, I then caught glimpse of this -- a crew of workers setting up almost 12,000 Canadian flags.  It's for Remembrance Day, in honor of all the fallen soldiers.
 It was absolutely beautiful to see but the symbolic meaning behind is bitter sweet.  None the less, I reached out to the setup crew working on it and thanked them for the beautiful sight.
