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.

Pretty Isn't Enough... Saturday, January 20

Shhhh... I'm going to let you in on a secret. Are you listening?!

Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in this world as a woman. 

There I said it. So go and let pretty be every other girl walking down the street, but not you. Instead, strive to be pretty strong, pretty smart, pretty inspirational. Be pretty badass at setting and smashing your goals, raising the standards, breaking down stereotypes, and making yourself better every damn day. Try to be pretty kickass cool with motivating others to better themselves too by being supportive, open and real. 

Whatever and whoever you want to be, that's your choice but don't limit yourself to only being just another pretty face girl when there's so much more you can be. Push yourself, do more, be more. 

Find your purpose and be pretty badass awesome at it.
