Why Milestone?

" I wanted to take a few minutes to share my heart behind opening a pediatric therapy clinic. It has been my dream to own a clinic since I became an occupational therapist. I saw the impact therapy had on families and became passionate about promoting that growth. I want to foster a community of women and men that empower one another to be the best versions of themselves. My vision is to incorporate families into the therapeutic process and to have my team be a resource during every season!"
