Any career field takes a certain amount of passion and dedication to achieve success. You have to put in lots of time, energy, and focus to get the results you desire. Challenges in life are inevitable, but the people who don’t give up, persevere until they achieve their goals. Victoria Doramus recently sat down with Ideamensch with an insightful interview. She discusses her career highlights, what she does to stay productive, and what advice she would give her younger self. Her answers are very relatable to just about anyone.
Victoria Doramus earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism and mass communication from the University of Colorado. From getting a college education, Doramus started working in the field of digital and print media. She worked with Mindshare, Stila Cosmetics, and other companies with their branding and advertising needs. Victoria struggled with addiction during her career as a digital and print media expert. It seemed the more her career got successful, her addiction got worse. Eventually, Victoria hit her rock bottom and got the help she needed. If Doramus could give her younger self some advice, it would be to move loving to herself, have more confidence, and do not worry about rushing things in life. As a recovery expert, she helps people get clean and sober, so they can live happier, more productive lives. Philanthropy also plays a huge part in Victoria’s life. She works with several charities to help them achieve their mission. Room to Read, Best Friend’s Animal Society, the Amy Winehouse Foundation, and the Women’s Prison Association are some of the charities she works with.
As a recovery expert, Victoria loves resources, digital devices, and technology to move her career forward. One app in particular, helps her find AA meetings wherever she is located, and it is called Pink Cloud. Victoria also loves apps that let her know health updates in regard to how she is doing. Doramus uses My Fitness Pal to track her eating habits, her Apple watch to track her health, and uses Whistle to track her dog’s exercise during the day. This all helps her stay on task so she can be a better help to others.
