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.

A Night of Fantastic Food and Fabulous Street Art


Was treated out to a very special celebration dinner tonight so I picked Thai food.

 There's always something going on here in Eastwood and tonight there was a live concert.
 There was also a graffiti show going on.  Earlier in the weekend the graffiti artists were out here doing their work and now it's all on display for everyone to enjoy.
 This was my favourite piece among them all.
I'm have connections with one of the artists and at the site of all this work on display it got me thinking.  If I decide to launch my Second Dream here in the Philippines, I'd definitely 
be interested in getting him to do the interior of my place.
