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.

Sparring Day for Me

It was another beautiful day, a Monday, the first day of the new week, and I was running off to boxing.
I turned around right here, right before the big bridge, and snapped this picture of all the traffic.
 The last time I had sparred was on November 22nd.
 Turns out that was the last time Coach Bogs had sparred too.
My shirt reads "no days off" and as much as I don't take days off training, I have taken way too much off sparring.  Holidays and schedules were definitely to blame, as was "Charlie" for acting up again.
