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.

Still Working Hard... Thursday, April 18

This is what I look like on a holiday as a pro athlete, boxing coach and small business owner. 

Nothing extra special, right?!
Nothing different, right?! Exactly.

My hustle and grind doesn't stop for the holidays.

Now I'm not hating on the holidays but I'm also not participating in them either. And if you're one of the 11 fighters I coach who is NOT out of the country for Holy Week, you know I've been buzzing up your phone, calling you out to train. Trained a fighter this morning actually, right before she raced off to catch her flight. Now that's dedication!!!

Happy Holy Week for those celebrating it. Happy Holy-Crap-that's-Intense Week for those of you "stuck" training with me.
