Dela Hammargren

Coach, Fargo-Moorhead

Dela has extensive experience with addiction and the criminal justice and foster care systems. She's passionate about using her experiences to help others who are struggling.

Coach type: Person with addiction and loved one

Coaching since: 2019

Lived experience: 

From a very young age, I've been surrounded by addiction and the lifestyle that comes with the disease. I was in the foster care system when drugs took hold of my life. The criminal justice system helped me find a new way of life in 2017 and I've been well ever since.

Professional background: 

I grew up in Grand Forks and have a strong background in customer service. Previously, I've let my criminal background define my worth in work, but now I'm using my lived experiences for the greater good.


Criminal justice, foster care system, trauma, depression, anxiety


I love to be creative with paint and other crafts, and I love finding new music that feeds my soul. I'm passionate about reading fictional books and love to be outside doing activities such as fishing.
