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.

One Long but Successful Hunt

Behind this closed down and blank wall is a commercial space that's so kickass awesome I spent a good chunk of my day tracking down who is responsible for it.
My search lead me here, to the Grand Canal Venice Mall in McKinley.
With it's beautifully detailed entrance and canal in the middle, I had to giggle at the thought of me being in the Philippines and it looking nothing like what my 
friends and family back in Canada probably envision it to be like.
On days like today, when the work is hard and the stress is a lot, I thank God for coffee.

My stress quickly turned into quite the success story though when I was asked to sign in at Megaworld. Finally my search had ended.  I had found what I was looking for.
