As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. 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 returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am 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.

Working at Full Speed

For everyone who thinks age is important, check out my girl Patty.  She's 49 and killing us all boxing.
And for all my fans who keep on asking for shots of my butt, here you go!
 Had a meeting at Sports5 and check out their lobby.  It's a basketball court!  A-m-a-z-i-n-g!!!
Am blessed to be here in the Philippines, the land of opportunity for us entrepreneurs, but I'm especially blessed for all the strong women I have met, like Patricia. She's a sportscaster and head of Sports5 and is quite the athlete. Our love for boxing was how we originally met. Today I met up with her to bounce some business ideas around and am grateful for her positive feedback, encouragement and help. Empowered women empower women and she's definitely an empowered woman.
Boxing in the park... because when I said we were going to do boxing, I meant it. I showed up with gloves, mitts, an agility ladder, and of course my time bell and speaker! 
Boxing in the park, tonight's Empowered boot camp.
