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.

A Part of the Team... Sunday, October 28

I've started playing rugby only for a few weeks now which means I've only been learning it for a few weeks too.  Maybe it's only a couple of weeks actually, come to think of it.

Yes, I've been to 3 practices.

I'm really enjoying it.  And even though I'm not quite a deer caught in the headlights when someone hustles me, I'm more of a freak-out-and-throw-the-ball kind of girl, it's been a lot of fun to learn the sport.  It's a lot harder to put power behind the ball when you're running with it as oppose to just standing there. 

It's off season now for full contact rugby, tackle rugby.  That season doesn't start till February.  But today they announced that they'll be entering the touch rugby league and I got asked if I wanted to join.  Sure, I'd love to join.

First game is November 10th... cool.
