White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated on Thursday that she’ll be stepping down from her duties within the next year, which means she’ll be losing her large salary. How much does she make anyway?

Psaki is reported to make around $183,000 per year with a net worth of $2 million, according to Exact Net Worth. Her former stint as a CNN political commentator was included in that configuration. 

As for why she is stepping away from the impressive payday, Psaki revealed that she plans to spend more time with her family, which she explained during appearances on CNN Tonight With Don Lemon and "The Axe Files" with David Axelrod

“This was something I told colleagues and friends, and in my discussions with the amazing people in the Biden orbit, was part of the discussion early on. I'm so honored to serve this president, and at this moment in history to be a small part of rebuilding trust in government,” Psaki said. “But I also have two little kids who are preschoolers, and I know a lot of moms who watch your show who understand that. I don't want to miss a lot of moments.”

"I don't want to miss moments. I don't want to miss things, and I'm very mindful of that as well," she said.

Previously, the 42-year-old worked on former President Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign in 2008, as well as on his communications team as deputy press secretary and deputy communications director, according to Business Insider. 

She also was the spokesperson for the State Department, and then served as the communications director to the president again in 2015.
