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 Beast to Beauty

Today I went from beast...
...to beauty... or at least I tried.
I had a business dinner to get to so I had to get my exhausted, gym nasty sweaty self dolled up.
Tonight's dinner party was being held at the spectacular a restaurant located at La Shangri Hotel.
The restaurant was called the Raging Bull and at the next table over sat some local celebrities.
I snapped this picture of them as I left.  I'm not into the life of the so-called rich and famous but that's the kind of clientele this place attracts.  It's a pretty posh place.
 It definitely had a rich vibe to the place -- stunningly gorgeous.  
I argue that the company who joined me at my table made the restaurant and evening memorable but it definitely helped that the salmon I ordered was melt-in-my-mouth delish and the apple crumble pie gave me the warm fuzzies.
