While working full time in the banking industry and part time at Wilderness Ridge, Linda Heiman was offered a chance to work at Reimers Kaufman. She had been wanting to get into something more sales related and thought this was the perfect opportunity.
She started in the showroom as inside sales seven years ago and worked with homeowners on selecting their brick, stone, walls and pavers for their homes. A year later, she was transferred to outside sales and now works predominantly with builders, landscape contractors and architects. She loves working with people and it has been her absolute dream getting paid to talk to people. Reimers Kaufman manufactures concrete blocks and retaining walls locally at 6200 Cornhusker Hwy. They also distribute brick, manufactured stone, natural stone, and pavers to contractors and builders as well as retail.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally?
Being a young female in a male industry was challenging in the beginning. I didn’t have a background in the industry prior to working for RK so I had a lot to prove.
What has been your most important achievement professionally?
Gaining respect from my co-workers and customers through hard work. It’s been a rewarding journey the last seven years as I’ve grown in the industry and become a strong resource for our company.
Tell us a little about your family.
I’m the youngest of five from rural Nebraska. We are all spread out across the country now. I am engaged to my best friend, Dave and we have two yellow labs.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
Take a long walk with my dogs and attempt to play a round of golf. Dave is convinced he’ll make a golfer out of me yet!
What is the most unique or interesting thing about that most people don’t know?
I grew up on a hog farm and learned my work ethic at a young age from my family.
What are you most proud of?
Running the half marathon a few years ago. It was awesome crossing it off my bucket list. I even finished it under the goal I had set for myself.

Treat people with more kindness than necessary, you don’t know what battles they are facing.
