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, small business owner, home builder, decorator, volunteer raising funds for scholarships and bursaries. She is a mother of 3 adult children, a grandmother of 3 and a serious gardener creating beautiful outdoor and indoor plants and shrubs. See https://www.myrtlesiebert.com
