“ WORKING WITH SONDER WAS THE BEST THING WE COULD HAVE DONE TO KICK OFF OUR JEWELRY LINE. SHE WAS ABLE TO INFORM US OF WHAT WE NEEDED TO KNOW FROM START TO FINISH. THIS SAVED US WHEN SPEAKING WITH MANUFACTURERS AS SHE SHARED INFORMATION WITH US THAT WE COULD NOT HAVE KNOWN OTHERWISE.

SHE IS A WORLD OF INSIGHT AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND WORKING WITH SONDER. "
