Women in Landscape: Weed Man Franchisee Lori Heidt

Landscape Industry Careers

It's no secret...at Weed Man Lawn Care, we're all for promoting women joining the green industry. In fact, our very own Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Lemcke has flourished in the male-dominated industry since her joining the company back in 1992 in Gatineau, Quebec. But, it doesn't stop there! The number of female franchisees and employees continues to grow year after year. And people are starting to notice, too.

Lori Heidt, Vice President and COO of Weed Man Calgary, Alberta and Weed Man Edmonton, Alberta, was recently featured on Landscape Industry Careers...and we couldn't be prouder!

Lori was asked:

What strengths do you bring to your job that help you succeed in a male-dominated industry?

Her answer? 

Confidence. I've done it all. I know what I am talking about and when I tell you something, I have the knowledge to back it up. I learned everything in this field by doing. I've rebuilt the equipment in the winter, tearing down the spreaders, pumps and aerators and putting them back together. I am not afraid of hard work or getting my hands dirty.
