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.

Boxing Connections Outside of the Ring

Headed off to Makati to step into this beauty of a gym to train my first client of the day.
There were a few of us trainers doing boxing actually and a conversation between one of them and me sparked.  He recognized me from social media, turns out he's very familiar with Team Insider and the coaches there.  Also turns out he's a pro fighter too, very cool, 
so of course we had to snap a picture together.
 Taking a picture with my fierce female boxing bud here means I always look so huge and so gym nasty in comparison to her.  I had to take a picture though, I mean, look at her hat!!!
 And viola, the man of the hour today... my new boxing manager!!!
