Background and Work.

Victoria Doramus holds a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of Colorado – Boulder. Her love and passion for arts saw her take another immersive semester program from the Sotheby’s Institute of Art, where she studied the history and development of art and its evolution from the ancient Greek beginnings to contemporary art.

Victoria moved on to work with different media industries thanks to her creativity and profession in digital and media. Her first job was at MindShare where she was the assistant media planner with responsibilities including; interacting with customers to produce branded content and manage work relationships with media account executives.

Gaining a lot of experience, Victoria moved to become a creative Consultant at Stila Cosmetics where she spent most of her time with the art director working on different campaign projects.

Victoria worked with other brand companies after that such as Creative Agency, became the West Coast Director at Trendera and served as a Personal Assistant to Film Director and Producer, Peter Berg.

The battle with Addiction.

In 2011, Victoria visited rehab in Tucson, Arizona in quest of finding a way out of her addiction in Adderall and cocaine spending 45 days at the rehabilitation center.

Her life was becoming a mess, and she visited yet another rehab in Connecticut, spending 65 days and that’s when she decided to do whatever it takes to find a way out.

Things didn’t, however, go as planned not until she visited a recovery center, Burning Tree in 2017. She started her long-term treatment, and after four months Victoria Doramus was reborn and began her charity work supporting different organizations including; the Army Winehouse Foundation, Room to Read and Best Friends Animal Society.
