After leaving the public accounting industry for 2.5 years, Linda missed the work so much and decided it was time to get back into it. “She is extremely caring, down-to-earth and one of the most kind-hearted individuals we know. Her attitude, knowledge and desire to give it her all makes her the perfect fit and we are so lucky to have her,” exclaims Ashley, reflecting on a few of many reasons why everybody loves Linda.
Linda joined the Landwehr Tax & Accounting team in October of 2018. When asked what she likes most about her career at Landwehr working mostly with accounting and taxes she states, “I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere, the variety of work and the client focused core values of the company. I have worked in a variety of businesses over the years but truly enjoy my time in public accounting the most.”
Growing up in the small town of Freeport and graduating from Melrose High School, Linda chose to go to Moorhead State University where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in 1994. Later that year, Linda married Brian Gertken. They have lived on a farm in between Albany and Avon since and have raised their three children on the property. They have one daughter, Kiersten, and two sons, Brady and Tanner. They also have been blessed with three grandchildren: Gabriel, Addyson and Arya.
In Linda’s spare time she enjoys going for walks, spending time with family and friends, and finding refurbished antique projects to work on with her husband.
