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.

Working on "THE" Dream

 I've started packing up my stuff for storage, for when I move to the Philippines, and today I came across a poem a girl, an artist, sitting on a street corner once wrote for me this past summer.  
 She had asked me what I wanted the poem to be about and I said I was only going to give her the title of it -- "My Second Dream".  She then sat down, pondered for a bit, and then eagerly typed out on her typewriter anything and everything that came to her mind.  This was her poem.

Back when she wrote the poem even I didn't really know what my Second Dream was but now I do.  And now I see just how relevant and dead on she was with her words.
 ...and then I went and spend $40 on two hamburgers, ouch.
Not the wisest of decisions I've done but I decided to treat someone tonight, in between slaving away on my business proposal and, well, slaving away again on my business proposal.
