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.

A Past Life I Lived

This use to be my life -- the life I let people see.
I was so careful.  I had the man, the pups, the dream job, the cars, and even 
a scooter though I didn't actually had a license.
Tomorrow is going to be an anticipated hard day for me so today I was distracted by it.  Everything and everyone seemed to get on my nerves but I found great humor in seeing this picture flash up on my Facebook page. 
Balboa saw this destruction of "us" even long before we started to break.
I had written Amy plus Snickers in the sand.  Balboa scratched out my name 
like a mad man and then peed on it.
