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.

From the Shawa to the Big City

 Morning sparring with the great Coach Adrian at James Town Boxing over in Oshawa.
Jumped on the GO Train and headed out to Toronto.  It felt good to be back in the big city.
Showed up at The Captain's office for a little espresso break with him.  
He surprised me with peanut butter... he knows me well!
Trekked around downtown for a bit and snapped some pics.
Was treated out to a super delish dinner by The Captain.
We shared a salad and steak... and some warm carbs (the bread).
I should have put my hand up to the plate because even after splitting it, it was massive.
 He ordered two desserts but who were we kidding, I was going to dibble in both... and I did.
