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 Old Picture but a New One for Me


Goggled myself today and came across some pictures of myself from the article 10Magazine did on me.  They did a feature on us so they took a whack of photos of us for the magazine's cover and for the two page spread on us.  

I don't recall ever seeing this picture.

The look on Snickers' face vs mine says it all.  We were in the process of renovating for the opening of Hulk's Boxing.  It was absolutely exhausting and you can see that in his face but I was on cloud nine, so happy and so pumped about my dream coming true.
