Life before Sparkes

Life outside of Sparkes
Shannon loves live music and attends as many concerts as possible. She's an avid rugby union fan and won't hesitate to tell you all about her trip to the World Cup in New Zealand in 2011. A keen traveller, Shannon follows the Dalai Lama's advice of visiting at least one new place every year.
