Secret Agent Woman

fbi logo Secret Agent WomanFrom the time she was a little girl, Tanith Rogers always knew she wanted to be an FBI agent. But, she didn’t have a clue as to how to go about reaching her goal.

“When I was little, becoming an FBI agent was like becoming an astronaut,” she said. It seemed like an impossible dream.

As soon as she was old enough, Rogers joined her local police department. When two FBI agents walked into her workplace one day  she peppered them with questions about how she could achieve her childhood dream.

Rogers earned a college degree and went on to become an FBI agent where she tracks down cyber-criminals. For her remarkable work in law enforcement Rogers has received several awards.  She’s even coined a term that’s been added to the FBI dictionary.  “Sextortion,”  Rogers explains “is basically extortion with a sexual component.”
