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.

In Honour of Her

Wearing my mom's necklace was rather emotional today but it was good.
And of all days for Coach Adamson to ask to wear my necklace when I took it off for training, today he asked.  It was the first day he's ever asked.  I let him wear it but will admit it was rather hard to do padwork with him seeing my mom's necklace looking back at me.
In honour of my mom, Skittles asked me if he could treat me to a special dinner tonight.
We headed out for Thai food to celebrate her birthday.
I feasted... we both did.
Returned home to then get back to business.  Tonight's big task, cleaning the leather of all my gear.
