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.

Getting Down and Dirty Before and After Boxing

As if boxing at the Philippines army gym didn't get me dirty enough, I showed  up filthy dirty for boxing thanks to my 2.5km walk in the rain.
Note to self, don't wear a white shirt if you're training at the Philippine army's boxing club.
Wow, just wow.  Not only did I walk in with mud up the back of my legs and caked on my feet but I picked up everything and anything on the boxing ring floor on my shirt and then the colour from my sports bra bleed.  It made for a "great" walk home.
