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.

Boxing Beats with the Boys

Stepped into the ring today with a newsparring partner.  
It was none other than my coach, Coach Bogs.
He fights at the same weight as me but I weigh-in right now a little bit heavier than him.
I tried to keep him against the ropes and do a lot of body shot combos on him.
We only went three rounds but to say "only" is an understatement.  It was exhausting... but I loved it.
Later in the day I headed over to Hernandez Boxing to see if the champ was training.
