“You’re a great life coach Sonny, and I deeply value the time we’ve spent together and the progress you’ve helped me make in my professional and personal life. I wouldn’t be this far along in my vision and goals or have this much courage to push forward without your support”Neha Gate (Musician/Guitarist for Grove Roots, Amba Holly, Sianne Daugherty)
“Sonny has really helped me with her coaching by helping me narrow down what I really want and also supporting me through those goals I have set. While she does push me towards completing goals, in the best way possible, what I also admire about her coaching is that she takes into account that challenges happen in life. She helps me by supporting me and how I can navigate around them and change schedules to best suit my mental wellbeing needs.Peyton Morete (NZ singer/songwriter)
