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.

Have a Break, Have a Coffee and Some Extra Smiles


My shirt reads "be strong" but sometimes that's the hardest thing to do.  It's my only choice though.  Today I was struggling to be strong so Skittles and Balboa took me out for a break, a coffee break.
 Balboa's little smiling face always cheers me up.
 Business might be going tough for me right now but business has just officially started for one of my Torontonian friends out here in the Philippines so tonight I went to celebrate his opening.
Holy feast for the eyes and yummy, yummy in my tummy!  Fish tacos, hell ya.  Super delish!
