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.

Boxing IS My Life

Snapped this picture today with some of the fun female fighters at Elorde.
Boxing is hard but it's also a lot of fun.  We sweat, we laugh, and then we sweat some more.
Discovered this picture on Instagram today.  Totally didn't realize I had been tagged in it a while back.
At the time I was training at Paul Brown's BoxFit when 
I was approached about being featured in a commercial.
Another picture discovery today.  I love this picture.  It's of Coach Mario and I doing ab work after boxing training at Hardknocks Boxing in Toronto.
