BRIDPORT — Sometimes the best ideas come just before a breakdown.
You’re at the end of your rope and you’re either going to break down or break through.
Nancy Sunderland is one of the fortunate who broke through.
Sunderland, 37, is a native Vermonter who grew up in Essex Junction to French Canadian parents who had emigrated from Quebec.
Toward the end of high school, Sunderland reviewed her options and made a decision that surprised several people around her: She enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps.
