|Bio||Myrtle grew up on a floathouse tied in Port Neville inlet on the remote BC coast. She credits a high school principal, a very lucky break, and a 5-year industry scholarship, for opening the way to enrollment in UBC at age 16. This logger’s daughter found a career beyond the expected marriage and motherhood of her time. A home economics degree opened doors to a variety of careers: teacher, business owner, home builder, decorator, volunteer and more recently gardener, mother and grandmother.See https://www.myrtlesiebert.com.|
