After serving Kitsap Mental Health Services for over four years as chief operating officer, Monica Bernhard will move over to the CEO position left open by Joe Roszak’s retirement, the organization announced Monday.

“I’m really excited about that,” Bernhard said Monday, adding that she’ll continue the work the agency has already been contributing to the community.

“The CEO prior to me, Joe Roszak, has left quite a legacy to follow. … I don’t see us doing something completely new. What I see us doing is really building on a lot of the great initiatives that have already started here,” Bernhard said.

Kitsap Mental Health Services’ board selected Bernhard after a nationwide search, unanimously agreeing that Bernhard’s nonprofit leadership experience and business acumen made her the “perfect person” to guide the agency, KMHS board President Patty Lent said in a statement.
