It all started 45 years ago for Nancy Sacquitne, a longtime nurse with the Winneshiek County Public Health Office. After a long career in the field, including the last 36 at Winneshiek County Public Health, she is set to retire later this month.

“I think the part I’ve enjoyed and will miss the most is the people,” said Sacquitne, who began her career in 1976 after graduating from St. Luke’s Professional School of Nursing in Cedar Rapids. “I’ve been fortunate to meet a lot of great people and have worked with a lot of amazing agencies throughout my career.”
