FOUNDER, CO-CREATOR RETURN TO ZERO, AND OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST
Kiley Krekorian Hanish, OTD, OTR/L is a bereaved mother, occupational therapist, founder of Return to Zero: H.O.P.E., and chair of the 2020 Mom Board of Directors.
Kiley and her husband Sean are creators of the Emmy-nominated film Return to Zero, starring Minnie Driver and Paul Adelstein. Based on their personal experience of their son Norbert, who was stillborn, this feature film is the first to tackle the taboo subject of stillbirth.
Through Return to Zero, Kiley has found much healing. Her willingness to share her story and most vulnerable life moments connected her to a community of families who have also endured the unimaginable death of a baby. Feeling less isolated in her grief, this experience inspired her to create Return to Zero: H.O.P.E.
