Entrepinayship’s vision is for every Filipina to realize her full potential and their mission is to promote entrepreneurship as a vehicle for self-determination and economic empowerment.

When I went through a divorce a few years ago, I had such horrible experiences not only with the legal systems but with my own lawyer too! Now, Cheryl is my lawyer in my child custody and support case.  She has been able to help me and my ex-husband through mediation.  Thanks to Cheryl’s hard work, I now have my kids back! Cheryl has always been there when I needed her.  I will always appreciate that.
