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.

Struggle and Peer Pressure

The struggle is real and peer pressure is still alive and thriving!
I spent a solid 6hrs occupying the corner seat at a table at Starbucks, working on my business proposal, and when I returned from the bathroom this was on my stuff -- a slice of a cinnamon bun one of the barristers here had left for me.  It was a sweet surprise... literally. 
Heyyyyyy, who was I to refuse her super sweet gift of sugar and spice?!  Exactly.
The struggle continued with me realizing after my workout I had finished off my protein power.
Have no fear, woke up in the early morning to a special delivery sent to me by someone special.
