Kerri Heilman, MOT, OTR/L

Owner/Occupational Therapist

Kerri is a registered and licensed Occupational Therapist with over 20 years of OT experience. She has worked in Out-Patient Pediatric, Early Intervention, School-Based, Hospital, and Rehabilitation settings. 

Kerri lives in Crozet with her husband and four amazing children. She loves traveling, live music, and spending time with her family and friends. Kerri and her family have converted two school buses into tiny house "Skoolies".

When the challenges of Covid necessitated a new adventure, converting a school bus into a mobile therapy clinic seemed like a natural and exciting endeavor! And thus, Milestones On The Go was born!!
