2022 AMP Influencer: Anne Marie Doramus
Vice President, Arkansas Bolt Co.
Arkansas Game and Fish Commissioner
Who or what has been a source of inspiration for you?
I am inspired most by Arkansans’ deeply rooted tradition of hunting and fishing and seeing new hunters and anglers experience the wildlife and wonders of the Natural State for the first time. As an AGFC commissioner, this is why I have a passion for supporting recruitment programs like our “Becoming an Outdoors Women” program series that gives women the opportunity to experience and learn new outdoor skills.
What’s your “go-to” first thing in the morning?
On days I can’t start my morning in a duck blind or a bass boat, I am committed to my coffee and a workout which sometimes turns into a coffee while I exercise.
Have you ever been mentored or mentored someone?
I think some people take for granted that looking for a trusted and experienced advisor or mentor in your life is something only for your career. I have been blessed to have several pivotal people I see as mentors for different aspects of my life.
The most productive part of the day?
I am the most productive early in the morning, but everyone is different. The most important thing is to find your productive period and plan your most important task around it.
What do you love best about what you do?
Whether I am in a sales meeting at Arkansas Bolt, talking with Arkansans about our natural resources, planning the next state fair, or mentoring a new hunter or angler. It is all about relationships for me.
Which of your accomplishments are you most proud?
Marrying Joe, because life is all about who you share it with.
