Victoria Doramus became highly successful as a market trend analyst and a digital and print media professional. She graduated in 2006 from the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado, earning a bachelor of arts degree in journalism & mass communication. She says she got to meet a lot of people during her time in college and also was able to cover some pretty major events.
After leaving college, she moved to Santa Monica, California, and joined Mindshare. This was followed by positions at Stila Cosmetics, Creative Artists Agency, and Trendera. She also spent time as an author and research assistant. Victoria Doramus moved to the New York City area in January 2014 and became film director and producer Peter Berg’s personal assistant.
Throughout most of this time, though, she was battling an addiction to drugs and alcohol. Victoria Doramus says that she couldn’t find a way back out of her addictions which led to her life being a complete mess. She twice went to rehab places but the lessons she learned didn’t stick. It was when she was homeless on the streets of New York that she realized she wasn’t going to get better on her own.
She ended up flying to Austin and joining a long-term rehab clinic there. This is a no-nonsense facility that made her face her addictions and learn how to live with them without taking drugs or drinking alcohol. She has now been clean for over a year and is back to living in New York with time also spent living in London. She is now self-employed as an addiction expert and strives to help others deal with the addictions in their lives.
Victoria Doramus says that what fulfills her nowadays is helping others. She volunteers her time for four nonprofits. She helps out at the Amy Winehouse Foundation and also supports the Women’s Prison Association. She also really enjoys helping kids and so volunteers at Born To Read. She is also an animal lover and so spends time volunteering for the Best Friends Animal Society which is striving to keep animals from being killed in animal shelters.
