SERVING THE AUTISM COMMUNITY SINCE 2015
Founder & CEO
Kiel Rager is the founder and CEO of InBloom Autism Services, a national ABA Therapy organization obsessed with clinical integrity, clinical outcomes, culture, and doing the right thing for the kiddos we serve. InBloom came into existence because Kiel has family members on the spectrum who received ABA Therapy from organizations that did not emphasize quality care, outcomes, or hiring the best clinicians. He and his wife Kate knew they could make a difference, and so InBloom was founded with a simple goal in mind: Always do the right thing and focus on achieving amazing outcomes for the kiddos we serve. Kiel holds an MBA and a BS from Indiana University.
Kate is the Co-Founder and Director of Contracting of InBloom. Kate is originally from Northern Indiana and attended Purdue university in West Lafayette. Kate brings an unmatched dedication to customer service and healthcare to ensure that each InBloom family is treated like a member of ours. She lives in Fort Lauderdale with her husband Kiel.
OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM
Chief Clinical Officer
Ellen works every day to ensure InBloom maintains the highest standards of ABA services and has been instrumental in developing the systems, culture, training methods, and support system for the entire clinical team. With 19 years of experience in the field of ABA, Ellen received her BA in Psychology with an emphasis on ABA from West Virginia University, her M.S. in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in ABA from Nova Southeastern and has received intensive training and work experience on the neurobehavioral unit at The Kennedy Krieger Institute at Johns Hopkins University. When asked why she's passionate about serving the Autism community Ellen said "Having the ability to implement research-based ABA interventions, that have proven to be effective for children with ASD time and time again, is both comforting and fulfilling. With these tools, we can make big changes in a person’s current quality of life, as well as provide an everlasting impact for his/her future. I can’t imagine anything more gratifying than that!"
Chief Financial Officer
With over 20 years of executive financial leadership experience, Kevin has built finance teams from the ground up, and successfully helped grow and transform companies by establishing key business drivers, process improvements, and budgeting enhancements. Most recently, McGovern led organic growth and cost-containment initiatives at MEDNAX, which was a key part of the company’s operational initiatives and transformation over the last 2-years. When asked why he chose to join InBloom, McGovern said, “I have family and friends who are living with Autism. I have seen firsthand the positive impacts that early diagnosis and an effective ABA treatment plan can have on improving outcomes for children, so I am excited to be joining an organization that shares my passion for improving the lives of those impacted by Autism.”
