Even though she is still pretty young Victoria Doramus has been through quite a bit during her life and has overcome some stiff challenges. After completing high school she became a student at the Boulder campus of the University of Chicago. She graduated with a degree in mass communication and journalism which she used to enter the media industry. Her first job was at Mindshare where she was an assistant media planner where she helped to create branded content and establish relationships with media account executives.
A few years later Victoria Doramus joined Creative Arts Agency in Los Angeles. Her job involved creating original editorial content, attending trade shows, and professional and personal scheduling for the executives of this firm. This led to her finding a job at Trendera as their west coast director and then working for Stila Cosmetics where she was a market trend analyst.
While this all sounds pretty glamorous, behind the scenes she was increasingly using drugs and alcohol. She was addicted to these substances and, despite a couple of trips to rehab, she kept returning to her addictions. It took hitting rock bottom before Victoria Doramus could turn her life around, take a long rehabilitation stay seriously, and find a way to stay sober. She now lives in New York City and makes it a point to attend addiction meetings on a weekly basis in order to stay away from drugs and alcohol.
Victoria Doramus now spends her time as an addiction expert and volunteering her time at nonprofits like the Women’s Prison Association, the Amy Winehouse Foundation, Room to Read, and Best Friends Animal Society. She also has big plans to open a halfway house in New York for other people recovering from addiction and who need help staying clean while transitioning from life in a rehabilitation organization to a more independent life.
