When pursuing a life of business and success, you have to be very focused and diligent. If you throw in personal life challenges, it can get so much difficult to succeed. Victoria Doramus is a true testament to the latter. These challenges did not stop her from pursuing her dreams. In her previous career, Victoria was a market trend analyst and media expert. She would have to attend cocktail parties all the time for work, which naturally serve alcohol. Since Doramus was struggling with drug and alcohol addiction, this lifestyle was not good for her well being. She decided to make some life changes, and this included finally getting sober and changing careers. Victoria Doramus is a recovery expert who uses her life experiences to help others recover.
In her college days, Victoria attended the University of Colorado. Upon graduating, Doramus earned a degree in mass communication and journalism. In 2012, Victoria took an immersive semester learning more about the development of art and history from ancient Greece to contemporary art in the western world. Since hitting the work world, Victoria Doramus worked at Mindshare as an assistant media planner. Her next job as at Stila Cosmetics as their creative consultant. One of the highlights of her career was as personal assistant of Peter Berg the film director. The recovery expert even dabbled in freelance writing for publications such as Cosmopolitan, the Huffington Post, and USA Today. Doramus was really excelling in her career, but her personal life took a turn for the worse. Her addiction to alcohol and drugs was spiraling out of control. She went to rehab multiple times, but she never quite recovered all the way until she hit rock bottom. Victoria tried changing everything in her life thinking it would stop her from using. She changed her friends and moved to different states, but nothing would work. It was upon realizing that addiction was a disease when she was really able to change her life around. Doramus went to Burning Tree in 2017, a radically different rehab facility to start her long term recovery journey. It was a life changing experience, and now she helps others get the help they need.
