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.

Starting Another Busy Week

My shirt reads "No days off" which is only appropriate because pretty much 
this whole week is a holiday here in the Philippines but not for us at the boxing club.
I posted this picture on Facebook today though I couldn't exactly disclose where I was.  I was at Snicker's opening-soon salon.  I was one of their "practice clients" today and I also got to be their "practice model" for their scratch work. 
 Only these ladies are allowed here; they're part of the crew.

The Philippines is loaded with many unusual names, Baby Girl being one of them.  Today I actually met a girl named Baby Girl.  She was super sweet and very nice but I vouched that because I was older that name was mine, it's my nickname.  I gave it to the Starbucks girl when she asked for my name at my business meeting.  It was only funny to her when she realized I wasn't Filipino so I guess I'll let Baby Girl keep her name.  She legally owns it.
