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 Building

Continuation of my mission to put together that white metal shelf unit.
Mission finally accomplished, mind you it was because someone else did it.
 No desk just yet so I resorted to sitting on the floor with the boys.  Action shot here of Cassius reaching for my hand.  He wanted me to pet him more... sure, baby.  I'll pet you all day.
Had a moment today where I stepped back and looked at what I'm creating.  This is a first and only in the Philippines and I'm making it.  I don't care if it goes big or stays this size, it's awesome. 
No excuses now that I have my own private boxing studio being created in my house.  Today there was a big thunderstorm so instead of heading out into the rain, I trained at home.  Of course, as you can see, the equipment isn't up yet and the gym isn't ready, but... no excuses, right?! Right.
