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.

Change of Status... Wednesday, April 4

I'm in the works of changing my Korean professional boxing license to a Philippine license and this all came about via a meeting at GAB today in Makati. One of my friends here in the Philippines is quite the game changer, definitely a pioneer. She and her ex got MMA legalised here in the country so walking into GAB today they all knew who she was. Funny thing is she's super tiny but that lady is a high baller. She is quite the boss lady, I love it.

I've been offered a fight here in the Philippines but with me being licensed by the Korean Boxing Commissioner, this means I have to obtain a temporary work visa,

That is unless I change my boxing license!!!

Consider it a minor loop-hole, a miracle-in-disguise, or a flat out wicked thing, so if I get a letter of authorisation from KBC in Korea I can be registered as a Philippine boxer. That's super cool not to mention such an honour and damn that'd be awesome to represent the country I now call home.
