She has nearly two decades of experience in the insurance industry. Before joining Ironshore, Dorneker worked for Zurich North America in a number of roles, including professional liability counsel and senior underwriter. She also worked as an attorney in private legal practice, and has represented Fortune 500 companies in complex insurance disputes.
