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.

Reality Check

What hurts more than turf burn from rugby?  
Turf burn being rubbed constantly by your boxing gloves while you box.  OUCH!!!

Jumping on Angkas to go home from boxing, I am reminded of how much I love this country.
The people here are so sweet to me and the Angkas drivers get so chatty with me. 
Driving home, however, I am also reminded that there are so many who need help.
