Shannen Johnson-Barker


Shannen was born and raised in South Africa and moved to Canada in 2014 to complete her English degree. She has worked in marketing and copywriting since and is also a professional, but fairly inactive, makeup artist. She spends a great deal of both her work and spare time explaining to people what a copywriter does. 

Shannen loves to cook and bake and enjoys forcing her husband to try her strange kitchen experiments. She considers it a basic life necessity to have at least one family braai (a South African BBQ) a week and will take any opportunity to spend time with her family.
