The daughter of a professor who was later revealed to have served in the military and a journalist, Oliva, Brody later graduated from Michigan State University.
She was also engaged to be married to James Lathom, a journalist but the two later broke up.
Brody later joined NCIS and after becoming a full-fledged NCIS agent, presumably carried out a few assignments of her own before being assigned as the Special Agent Afloat on board the USS Moultrie.
In 2010, she confronted Petty Officer Third Class Jerry Cooper who was wielding a suicide vest. Brody hesitated and as such, Cooper committed suicide with the attack causing extensive damage to the ship and also resulting in five fatalities as well.
In the aftermath of the bombing, Brody was later reassigned to the NCIS Chicago Office.
She presumably worked there for some time before requesting the assignment to New Orleans.
