SECRETARY - Myken Spiesz

After joining Clan Mackintosh in 2018 as a life member, I, Myken Spiesz, quickly moved up the ranks. I am currently the Secretary for our clan, along with the SE Regional Captain, and a Georgia, Florida, & South Carolina Convener, along with being a very proud Air Force Veteran.

At events you may see me in the Mackintosh tartan, but most likely in my Air Force tartan. Plans for this year will be Convening at Panama City Beach Scottish Festival, Fort King George Scottish Heritage Day, Savannah Scottish festival, Blairsville Scottish festival, Charleston Scottish festival, and Stone Mountain Scottish festival.

I am a proud mom of 4 wonderful kids. And in my spare time I LOVE to be out and about exploring.

My profession is an Accounting Manager and am currently working for a nursery/landscape business. It is wonderful to be able to watch things grow. I have been involved with the construction industry for many years working for general contractors whether they be custom home builders, commercial builders and a polyurethane company.
