With a background in Retail and Fashion, Katie Schoephoerster makes a seamless addition to our Fourth Floor team in Los Angeles. Katie is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, where she studied Visual Communications. At the start of her career, she worked as a Flight Attendant – allowing her to travel and meet interesting people all over the world. Katie then grew a career in retail, where she worked for many years as a District Manager for top fashion brands. Along the way she learned that the success of her stores was directly related to hiring the right people, and she became interested in pivoting to the world of recruiting. She excels in individualization and being able to identify a candidate’s unique talents in order to understand how they can contribute to the success of an organization. Her advice to job seekers: be open-minded; you never know where an opportunity might take you. Outside of work, Katie loves spending time with her daughter, Kamryn, catching up on reality TV, or planning her next weekend adventure.
