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.

Pens, Gloves and Chopsticks

I officially returned to the Reference Library today and I apparently seemed
to be the only one looking over their shoulder and sitting somewhat uncomfortable.
Friday night Fight Club at Cabbagetown Boxing scored a sweet turnout tonight.
I'm always so impressed by the energy and numbers that come out.  If only I had had such support and encouragement in Korea.  They have no idea how awesome this is. 
Balboa showed up as Fight Club concluded.
He's a big fan of any female so he was loving the cool crowd that was out tonight.
After training, this happened -- hello carbs!
Hello get-in-my-belly delish sushi!!!
