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 News to Break Out... Sunday, November 20

I got asked today to go to the Philippines to train for my next fight. I said “yes”. And just like that I now have a whack of news to break to a whack of people, more specifically though my dad and Snickers.
Things to tell my dad in the next few weeks:
  1. I’m getting another tattoo.
  2. I'll be spending Christmas with family but not family he has yet met.
  3. I won’t be in Canada for Christmas; I’ll be in Florida.
  4. I have an overseas boxing bout I’m prepping for.
  5. I’m heading out to the Philippines in the new year so I can train for my upcoming fight.
Things to tell Snickers in the next few weeks:
  1. I’m getting another tattoo.
  2. I’ll be dropping by Korea soon to go over legalities of our “relationship”.
  3. I have another fight, it's in Korea but I'm not fighting under our Hulk’s Club name.
  4. I won’t be training at Hulk’s. I’ll be training at another club, including one in the Philippines.
  5. Balboa is going with me to the Philippines.
