BRANDON — Sometimes, frustration can lead to inspiration.

Anyone who has driven through Brandon during the Route 7 construction knows how frustrating the time spent waiting for your turn to go can be. But it was a moment like that, sitting in traffic in her car near the Brandon Town Hall, that inspired Gina Germond to take a new path in her life.
