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.

Keeping the Faith and the Slay Alive

Some days I wake up totally pumped about slaying it, other days I have no honest idea on how 
I'm going to do it, but I'm learning how to have faith in the journey.
I took this picture when heading off to boxing. I was standing in the middle island when I looked up and thought to myself, this isn't a bad sight to see every single day... a beautiful blue sky and the street lined with palm trees.
Usually I come later in the evening for training but today I went in early, 
I had dinner plans, and I was so glad I did too.
Walked home super excited about the potential of Empowered and the team I'm building for it.
