Hi! My name is Donna Taylor and I own Bella Dia Salon and Day Spa. I just wanted to leave this message because Sonya has come into my life and has been an amazing Coach to me. She has helped me so much to just professionally, and emotionally, and personally to get on task and to kind of get my thoughts together and to get organized and to be more productive and just help me step out of my box and to just really think about things in life that maybe I did know but she just really brought them out on me and I’ve just been very, very pleased and happy. I’m so honored and blessed that she has come in my life and has really helped me like I said grow professionally and personally and I just feel a lot more pulled together and I look forward to a lot more. Thank you, Sonya.

Sonya was so influential in my success. Her managerial skills and sheer support and ability to speak on behalf of her staff was the key to the upward mobility of many mid-level staff. I for one am forever grateful for her ability to make me breathe for 10 seconds before I spoke. I revert to that on many occasions. Thanks, Sonya. Love you forever, my boss, my mentor. She is without a doubt a fighter for those she represents.
