As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. 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 returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am 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.

Positive Vibes at Training

Yup, that's my pastor and my pastor is cooler than yours, just saying.
Nothing says you have a solid support system like your pastor showing up at the gym with hugs.  He trains at System, that's where we met, and every time I see him he always is sure to greet me with a hug and a healthy dose of positive vibes. 
Awhile back an older man cornered me at the drinking fountain at System Fitness and insisted I punch him.  I didn't know whether to be insulted because he thought I must be weak because I'm a girl or that he thought I punched for free.  He's not the first guy that's approached me as such but he was the first one I actually punched on request. Tonight he showed up... and insisted more punches.  Went a few rounds on him, on camera.
