Interested in a career as an electrician, Mr. Heitzmann planned to sharpen his skills and get involved in general engineering in addition to his success in nursing. He is a veteran of the U.S. Army Nurse Corps and found further success as a freight and shipping professional, celebrating nearly 10 years of professional success.

Post-military retirement, Mr. Heitzmann continued to work in nursing in the civilian sector as a supervisor for HCR ManorCare of San Antonio until 2013. That same year, he accepted a freight handler and loading position with Lowe’s, in which he handles a variety of shipping and merchandise transfer functions at an individual store level. During this time, he became an NCATT Certified Aircraft Electronics Technician in 2019 and graduated with a certificate in airframe and power plant management from the Aviation Institute of Maintenance. Looking back on his illustrious career, Mr. Heitzmann attributes his success to being well rounded in his fields and confident in his endeavors.
