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.

Fighting the Forces of Cuteness

The struggle IS real.
Balboa is most definitely the bestest of best little snuggle buddies to have around but it only makes it impossible to wake up in the morning and leave him home alone.
Even when I'm not with him though I'm thinking about him.  
Today I meet up with the Captain at his office and he passed on a special gift
for Balboa as this Wednesday marks Balboa's 5th birthday! 
Balboa's first birthday in Canada.  I wonder if he'll get the royal pizza birthday treatment like he did in Korea.  Who's going to buy him a pizza?!  It's tradition.
