For the first several years of her career, Victoria Doramus was a print and digital media professional. She is now a philanthropist who splits her time between New York City and London. She has overcome a lot of challenge in her life, not least of which was her addiction to alcohol and drugs including cocaine and Adderall. The third time she entered treatment was the time that it worked for her and she now helps others overcome their addictions.
She was a market trends analyst who has worked for Trendera, Creative Arts Agency, Mindshare, and Stila Cosmetics. Her job was to determine the trends in different industries so that new products and services could target them. While she was very good at what she did for a living Victoria Doramus was increasingly slipping into a life that was completely outside of her control.
Victoria Doramus grew up wanting to have a career in communication. She earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communication by attending the University of Colorado. Later on, because she has always loved art and history, she completed a semester program that went over art and history including back to the time of the Ancient Greeks. She completed this program while living in London, England.
According to visualcv.com, after leaving the recovery center Burning Tree, Victoria Doramus spent four months living in a halfway house and working full-time as a waitress. Once she had saved up enough money she was able to visit her mom and then move to New York. She now dedicates her time to four nonprofits which are The Amy Winehouse Foundation, the Women’s Prison Association, Best Friends Animal Society, and Room to Read. Victoria Doramus believes that giving back to others is one way of continuing her own recovery from addiction. This is especially true with The Amy Winehouse Foundation which is a nonprofit dedicated to keeping young people away from drugs through education.
As for the future, Victoria Doramus has a dream of opening a New York halfway house. She is also working on a book, “Adderall: A Love Story”, in which she will share her experiences and insights into addiction.
