    Ann Wilkinson, the chairwoman of the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada, has submitted her resignation, according to the governor's office.

    Wilkinson's last day will be Friday, March 22. Gov. Steve Sisolak says he will appoint a replacement in the coming weeks.

    "I appreciate all that Ann has done for the Public Utilities Commission and for the State of Nevada," Sisolak said in a statement. "I commend her for her service to the people of this state, and I wish her all the best in her future endeavors."

    Wilkinson joined the commission in September last year after she was appointed by then-Gov. Brian Sandoval.

    She was previously the chairwoman of the Nevada Transportation Authority. She has also been general counsel for the PUC and deputy chief of staff in the governor's office, in addition to working in the Nevada attorney general's office, city of Henderson, city of Reno and Nevada Supreme Court.

    She is leaving "to pursue new opportunities," according to Sisolak's office. No other details were provided.
