As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I was wrong. I stayed, launched my first company, Flipside Fitness, and then opened Korea's largest boxing club, Hulk's Boxing (now called Hulk's Club).

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again.

Now I live in the Philippines where I am the CEO and head coach of Empowered Clubhouse, the Philippines' first and only boxing clubhouse exclusively just for women. I also am the founder of the Lil' Sistas Project, CEO and designer of Slay Gear and Baa Baa Black Sheep .Ph.

Fighting for a Cause

Today is #MyFreedomDay, a day to bring social awareness to modern day slavery so I got some of my peeps to help me represent.  The definition of modern slavery includes men and young boys forced to work in factories, farms and fishing boats, women and young girls forced to sell sex, and it also includes people exploited for their organs and children sent to beg or forced to marry.  Statistics from the Walk Free Foundation’s Global Slavery Index shows that of the estimated 40 million people enslaved worldwide, 784,000 are in the Philippines.
 My boxing club fam, fighting on behalf of those who can't.
And, of course, my Lady Mavericks teammates -- proudly supporting the cause
...because they're awesome like that.
