Gov. Bruce Rauner has hired a Yale-educated former CIA intelligence officer to lead Illinois’ health insurance enrollment efforts.

Rauner’s office announced Tuesday that Karin Zosel will be the new executive director of Get Covered Illinois, where she will oversee federal grant programs promoting insurance coverage.

Zosel most recently worked at MacMurray College in Jacksonville, where she created and implemented the college’s annual fund and managed its budget and operational expenses.

The governor’s office says Zosel has been a congressional aide, legal researcher and adjunct professor at Georgia Military College. She served as an intelligence officer for the CIA for nearly 10 years.

Zosel replaces Jennifer Koehler, who held the post in former Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration. Koehler resigned in February, saying she wanted to pursue other professional opportunities.
