After graduating with honors from preparatory school, Brooks studied at Tulane University in New Orleans where she graduated with honors with a B.A. in Communication/Broadcast Journalism.

On May 4, 1997, Brooks won the Miss Alabama USA 1998 title. She also was the Swimsuit Winner.

Brooks represented Alabama in the Miss USA 1998 pageant broadcast live from Shreveport, Louisiana in February 1998, which was won by Shawnae Jebbia of Massachusetts. She became ill right before the preliminary competition and the chaperones and producers were concerned about her being able to perform, so she was allowed to forgo activities in order to rest and heal. She was still ill during the competition and did not place in the Top 10, as she was expected to do. However, Brooks did place in the Top 20 finalists. Other honors that she received during the Miss USA 1998 pageant were being chosen as lead dancer during the opening number and also as a spokesperson for Shreveport, Louisiana during the city’s promo portion of the show.

Brooks is probably best known for her role in the film Men in Black II as "Princess Lauranna". This pivotal role garnered international fame on the worldwide silver screen. As a result, she was voted "Top Hollywood Blonde" by Internet Movie Database.

In the U.S.A., she is well known for her appearances as a "Barker's Beauty" on The Price Is Right.

Dr. Brooks holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Communication Studies.
