Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Governor Sandoval's chief of staff, Heidi Gansert, announced her resignation on Thursday.

Gansert said the decision came after weeks of discussion with her family and Governor Sandoval.

"The chief of staff position requires an extraordinary commitment and I have given it my all since helping lead the transition and from our first day in office," Gansert said in a statement. "In addition, preparation has begun on the Governor's biennial budget and legislative agenda, so now is the right time for a new chief to step in and guide the planning process for the 2013 Nevada legislature."

Sandoval's office has not announced who his next chief of staff will be.
