Frontline Features: COTA Helps Support Those Battling Addiction & Mental Illness During Pandemic


EAGAN, Minn. — Frontline Features presented by Miller Lite is recognizing extraordinary individuals who have overcome challenges to make a difference for others during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Michelle Delgadillo, a certified occupational therapy assistant (C.O.T.A.), has worked tirelessly throughout the duration of the pandemic. Specifically, she helps to provide programs and support for individuals battling chemical dependency and mental illness – a population that sometimes gets overlooked but has faced increased challenges due to the pandemic and shutdowns.

Those who know Michelle highlight her positive attitude and say she always sees the good in people. She has willingly worked extra days over the past 10 months in order to provide respite for coworkers.

Michelle is just as deeply committed to her family. She accomplished all of the above while also helping navigate an altered academic approach with her two children – including her son, who graduated this spring from Cambridge-Isanti High School.

The Vikings and Miller Lite are proud to recognize Michelle for her dedication to health care, mental health awareness and her family.
