FBI DIrector Robert Mueller named Brooks, 45, as special agent in charge of the office’s criminal division, which has handled terrorism and insider-trading cases.

Brooks replaces Diego Rodriguez, who was promoted to head the Dallas office in June, according to Business Week.

Brooks, who has a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Oklahoma Baptist University, began her career as an agent in the Los Angeles office in 1990 and has investigated white-collar crime, drugs and violence.
