Kathryn Bailey

by Gaby Gramont

Armed with a master’s degree in counseling, Kathryn Bailey has always loved listening to people—learning their challenges, their goals, what makes them tick. So it should come as no surprise that today, she uses these very skills as a counselor to job candidates, helping them live their best professional lives possible. This TorchLight recruiter wakes up every morning eager to make connections between the DC region’s leading companies and the very best marketing talent.

After obtaining her degree from Providence College and working in sales for Xerox, Kathryn turned her focus to human resources, holding positions in the digital media and publishing industry with recognized brands such as Bloomberg BNA and Atlantic Media.

Kathryn uniquely understands the many demands facing in-house recruiters today and aims to be a trusted partner to help them succeed in finding and hiring the region’s most experienced marketing professionals.

If she wasn’t working in recruiting, Kathryn would be a professional organizer, a skill she finds “fun” and “relaxing.” For now, though, she spends her days chasing after her two young boys, organizing the myriad resumes that cross her desk—and helping DC’s top companies hire the best talent.
