Growing up on a farm in England, Sonya realized at an early age that she had a very special connection with animals.  Her first true animal communication was with Judy, her terrier.  As Judy grew older, Sonya could actually feel Judy’s aches and pains in her own body.  She then realized that she was experiencing something out of the ordinary. She enjoyed her ability to communicate with the animals and they became her best friends.  Three of those friends were geese given to her by her father to raise.  When the geese were nine months old, her father killed them to serve as Christmas dinner and Sonya finally realized that other people did not have the same gift with animals as she did. Traumatized by the death of her friends, Sonya consciously decided to no longer communicate with animals to protect herself from the heartbreak. At 17, she moved to London to pursue a fashion and modeling career where she worked in all the major fashion capitals in Europe, appeared frequently on television and modeled for many noted designers.  After moving to the U.S. in 1991, Sonya decided to revisit her connection with animals and after a spiritual experience in 1994, started practicing her gift to better understand animals, solve their behavioral problems and help with their physical ailments.   

Sonya lives in Texas with her 7 cats, 5 dogs and 3 frogs.  For more information, visit
