During Frohman’s tenure, the department was instrumental in preserving the national title insurance market in connection with the housing crisis. She was instrumental at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners on national and international issues and in advancing financial reform of insurance groups.

Frohman became director of the department in November, 2007 after serving briefly as acting director. She had served as deputy director of the department since 2004 and was spent four years as general counsel. She started with the department in 1990, working for six years as a staff attorney providing legal counsel to DOI and state officials.
