KHOU consumer advocate reporter Tiffany Craig spent the better part of a  year helping care for her mother, losing her earlier this year to Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus which causes dementia-type symptoms.

In late February, she made this announcement:

And now, she is leaving the station and tv news after what had to have been some serious introspection according to an internal KHOU memo:

“From my first day in 2010 when Bill [Bishop] said ‘are you gonna work hard’ to the recent afternoon when Liz [Roldan] asked ‘are you sure,’ it’s been a whirlwind of a 13-year career at KHOU.
I’ve chased down news on every shift, talked my way out of an AM position a few times, and delivered the first live hit when we launched the 4pm show.
In 2014, I successfully campaigned for a new role and that’s how Consumer Advocacy at KHOU11 was born. On and off air, I’m proud to say that Gregg Ramirez and I helped a lot of frustrated Houstonians with their problems.
I’ve always said that I have the best job at the TV station but after losing both of my parents in two years, I need a change.
I’m shaking off the comfort of a 25-year broadcasting career, taking a giant leap of faith, and following a new passion I have realized since helping to care for my mom.
I’ll be working with AmareVida (that’s ‘love life’ in Latin). It’s a small, boutique-style home care company that helps seniors. I’ll also be searching for other ways to assist our aging population.
Thanks to so many of you for your help and support along the way.”

What a laudable career change she is making!

Good luck to her on this new path.
