She trained Angelina Jolie in Salt
Angelina Jolie has her to thank for those sleek fight moves in action-thriller Salt, where she played a CIA agent accused of being a Russian spy.
Singapore-born Jennifer Phillips choreographed the fight scenes for the movie and is the only prominent female fight choreographer in Hollywood.
The former CHIJ girl attended Catholic Junior College before she flew to the US to further her studies.
She then started her own company providing fight choreography services, among other things, and has been living there ever since.
