My Niece the Purchasing Supervisor
Breanne Determan, my niece who lives in Phoenix and works for Rinker Materials, is visiting us for a few days. The last time she was here, she was about eight years old, and now she's almost 22. In the meantime she's grown up in Texas, one of two daughters of Darlene's brother Stan and wife Beth. I see a lot of Stan's easygoing ways in Breanne, who talks about her work and college life with a matter-of-fact confidence well beyond her years, or at least well beyond anything I remember having myself at her age. In this eight-minute podcast episide, she talks about concrete things, like crushers and rock, and she has some advice for anyone just about to finish high school.
