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.

An Overdose of Totally Unexpected Sweetness

A special letter arrived for me in the mail today.  It was sent to me all the way from Korea.
I pride myself in being a tough cookie but this totally melted my heart!!!
And if it wasn't sweet enough, getting that letter, I was also treated to a special dinner tonight.
I was treated to a home cooked meal.  I worked away at my business stuff and studying while he worked away in my kitchen.
Sorry Balboa but this meal isn't for you... nor was there any food left over for him even 
if I did want to give him some.  It was just so flat out delish!!!
 Dinner served... Filipino style chicken with seasoned cauliflower.
