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.

Looking Back and Growing Stronger

It's hard not to look back on the life I lived in Korea, all the good, the bad, and the ugly, but I'm blessed to have moved on and started a new life here in the Philippines. 
I brought the fuel and fire of reflecting back on what happened this day years ago in Korea to my training tonight and it made me feel exceptionally grateful for the Makati Running Club.  I've only been running a couple of weeks with them but I like them a lot and they really push me at training.
