Director of West LTRC announces her resignation

Posted:
WEST - Karen Bernsen has announced her resignation as the Executive Director of the West Long Term Recover Center effective January 30 or when her successor is named.

According to a release from the Board of Directors of the West, TX Foundation, the Board has already begun searching for the person to fill her position. Bernsen will continue to help with the recover effort as a volunteer.

In a statement from Bernsen, she says her decision was reached several weeks ago.

Here is Bernsen's statement regarding her resignation:

"After praying about this for months, the decision was reached several weeks ago to resign.  The timing was held in abeyance until the team was in place to support the continuing recovery efforts of the residents of West.  This has been the most challenging, yet rewarding work I have ever done, and it's been an honor to serve my community in this capacity.  As you will note in the press release, there have been so many positive achievements made by our partners and team members at the West LTRC, and I knew the time was right to return my focus to my husband and our four young children."
