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.

Just One of Those Days

I just want to fight and fighting to get a fight is, well, leaving me feeling too many feelings.
To box is to do a sport. To be a boxer is to live a lifestyle.
Dealing with the behind-the-scenes legal paper work that comes with 
being a foreign boxer training and fighting abroad.
Today that included getting papers notarised. 
It's been a rough day and then Mother Nature poured on me, of course.

Got stuck in the rain with Balboa and then totally melted at the 
cuteness that resulted from me towel drying him after.
