Meet the Team


Dorrie offers decades of experience as a healthcare executive and nursing director. Licensed as a Registered Nurse and Nursing Home Administrator, Dorrie has successfully directed a number of the country’s largest long-term care facilities and networks. A Bachelor of Science in nursing and an MBA in health and hospital care management provide the foundation for Dorrie’s clinical sensitivity and management expertise.

In 2000, Dorrie’s company Method Management was subcontracted by Life Service’s Network (LSN), Illinois’ state-wide association that represents nonprofit senior service providers, to provide risk management consultation for its membership. Additionally, Dorrie is the well-respected author of the LifeLines articles, which have appeared weekly in LSN’s and other state associations’ publications, and is a sought-after speaker at the state and national level, sharing her risk management, regulatory compliance and leadership development strategies.

IPMG merged with Method Management in 2004 and expanded its scope to include direct consultation to long-term care providers, as well as professional liability and workers’ compensation exposure-based risk management services. Dorrie currently develops, directs, and evaluates the liability/regulatory loss control services provided to all of the company’s insurance program clients, including long-term care risk retention groups and public entities trusts in several states.
