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.

Surrounded by Strong

Me pretending to upper cut Coach Marcelo was my attempt at trying to cheer him up.
Sitting ringside, talking about the dirty politics of boxing.
 Was treated to some "real" coffee today, a cappacino over a work meeting.
Today's meeting was with this beautiful boss babe.  She's the one who initially introduced me to the little girls I now call my Lil' Sistas.  Unfortunately for me, she's moving to Boracay soon so I won't be able to see her much at all.  She's done amazing things for the girls here and my hope is to do the amazing things for them too.
