As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I was wrong. I stayed, launched my first company, Flipside Fitness, and then opened Korea's largest boxing club, Hulk's Boxing (now called Hulk's Club).

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again.

Now I live in the Philippines where I am the CEO and head coach of Empowered Clubhouse, the Philippines' first and only boxing clubhouse exclusively just for women. I also am the founder of the Lil' Sistas Project, CEO and designer of Slay Gear and Baa Baa Black Sheep .Ph.

A Cup of Canadian

It may be super hot in this country and we may be super sweaty from boxing, but when a Tim Horton's coffee shop opens up by the boxing club you go.  No questions asked, no explanations needed.
I dropped my business card in their bowl, as if having a Tim Horton's open up
here in Makati wasn't pure luck enough.
My happy moment, living life in flip flops with my four-legged boy from Korea 
by my side and a Canadian coffee in my hand.  Yup, life is pretty good... 
very international and very good.
