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.

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.
