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.

Boxing is ALL Around Me

If training barefoot the other day and scoring "gym feet" took me to a whole other level of 
training than training injured today definitely pushed me to another level too. 
I was pushed to extremes today and doubted if I could finish but then I met this 
fierce, fabulous female and not finishing suddenly wasn't even an option.
 Rewarded myself after boxing with a dip in the pool... sweaty clothes and all.
 And just when my day of boxing was done, I walked into the mall and was greeted by this -- my gym Fitness First doing a promo event.  They were doing a kick boxing class and there was a screamer, oh gosh.  A participant that insisted on continually screaming.  He was so loud and I'm sorry but I couldn't stop laughing.  I'm convinced that the girl in front of him, also doing the class, wanting nothing more than to drop kick him, seriously!!!
