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.

Exhausting and Exhaustion

I box five days a week with today being one of them so off to the boxing club I went. 
A bit ghetto, sure, but very useful -- using the fanned air of the air conditioner to dry out my 
gloves after training.  And to think, Coach Bogs then sprays them.  There's some 
serious smell that comes out of those gloves so drying them isn't enough.
Nap time with Balboa.  I figured if he was always allowed to come in my room 
and sleep on my bed then I was allowed to do the same with his.
