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.

Intensity on the Streets and in the Field

Most days I honestly don't feel like I live in a foreign country and then I turn the corner and am reminded that I do.  Military and police on high alert today as rumor has it the Chinese President is in the city.
Walking back from my coaching today, yeah, this was the scene on numerous streets... wow.
Reminded me of Korea, definitely, like when they have street protests.
 Super blurry pictures of a super intense new sport I picked up tonight -- full contact rugby.
I recently took up touch rugby but I have no idea who though touch rugby and full contact rugby could even be called the same sport because they're so different.  It's like comparing hockey with soccer.
