What’s your favorite number?
Currently 152, the number of stitches in a row for my current knitting project.
What would you be doing if you weren’t an accountant?
I have been an accountant so long, that I can’t think of anything else. Perhaps I could run a food truck that would sell Hot Dishes.
What’s your current goal outside of Copeland Buhl?
To buy 20 acres in Tennessee (out of the cold) and build a small home with a garden. We would have two tiny houses for friends and family to come visit.
