Anne Marie Dumain is a graduate of VCU’s Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture with a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communications and a concentration in Public Relations. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from VCU. She is also a practicing musician and an alumna of the VCU Guitar Ensemble and VCU Community Guitar Ensemble.
In the summer of 2014, she participated in VCU’s Social Media Institute to develop specialized knowledge of social media strategy for nonprofits. Her project team took on the Department of Music as a client, and under her leadership, they developed a campaign that won first place in a competition judged by a panel of professionals from CBS 6, the Richmond Times-Dispatch and Richmond Social Media Club. Anne Marie’s creative leadership on the project led Department of Music Chair Dr. Darryl Harper to offer her a communications internship, the first of its kind within the department.
After completing her internship in the fall 2014 semester, Anne Marie served as communications assistant and box office manager for two years. She was promoted to her current role as Communications Coordinator in May 2017.
