“Kathryn is an amazing recruiter dedicated to excellence and great service. She is not only professional, but also a genuinely kind person who wants her clients to succeed in the best way possible. It’s been a pleasure working with her!”

“Kathryn Strupp of Whitfield Recruiting has a warm, service-oriented approach to her recruiting process, and ensures that the needs of both her client and the candidate are mutually met. After working with other recruiting agencies in the past, I was hesitant to work with another recruiter-but I am so happy that I did! Kathryn far surpassed any previous experience that I have had with other recruiting agencies/recruiters with her communication, attention to detail, and high level of professionalism. Kathryn was an absolute pleasure to work with, and genuinely wants her client and candidate to succeed. She is invested to find the best match between the position looking to be filled, her client, and the candidate. My experience with Kathryn was nothing but positive, and I highly recommend her services to any candidate or company looking to fill a role within their organization. Thank you, Kathryn!”


“Kathryn has been a great help to me as our team has grown. She was able to find candidates that not only had the experience and skills we were looking for, but were also motivated by the mission of our company and our values. Before working with Whitfield Recruiting, we tried several different avenues to attract candidates but none were as successful as working with Kathryn. She really spent time getting to know our company and making sure she understood our needs before bringing us candidates. The amount of time she saved us in the hiring process was invaluable.”


“I wouldn’t change anything about my experience with Kathryn. She is compassionate, genuine and forthright. It is clear that her consideration for the needs of employers and needs of candidates are equal, she’s just the matchmaker. If I had any questions she answered them directly and kept active conversation on status of my opportunity.”


“Kathryn is great at matching individuals with companies that allow them to use their strengths and continue to hone their skills. She thoroughly speaks with candidates before introducing them to prospective employers to make sure her recommendations are a great match! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to strategically add to their team.”
