As the story has it, I woke up and found myself on the very opposite side of the globe – the flipside. I arrived February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d simply 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, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company, Flipside Fitness, and CEO of my own boxing club, Korea's largest -- Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada but only to pack up my bags and venture out again. Now I'm living in Makati, Philippines. Life for me is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This isn't a new chapter in the book of my life though, it's a whole new book I've started!!! I'm a whole new woman. I left Korea 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.

Life is an adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

For the Love of Fighting

"I don't think I'll be able to use my arms for the rest of the day", I told my boxing coach. 
"That's okay," he laughed, "you have lower body weight training tonight". 
Nice, no mercy and no sympathy. 
My training here in the Philippines continues and I'm absolutely loving it!
Some upcoming fight cards here in the Philippines... I'm excited.
The pool of fighters here in this country is awesome.  There's such talent and, because the fighter pool is so big, when there's a fight for a championship you know it's going to be a solid, legit fight.
