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.

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.
