K.A. Recruiting began as a conversation over a cup of coffee in 2008 between Alisha Dynan and K.C. Carpenter. After years of working together, they had developed a similar vision and approach to recruiting.
Both had fathers who were entrepreneurs, and they wanted to create a company and culture that stood by its values and could better serve healthcare clients and candidates. Alisha and K.C. recognized a need for medical and healthcare recruiting services in the clinical healthcare space. Nurse and medical technologist shortages across the country needed more than another medical temp agency.
The shortage of healthcare professionals required a company with the expertise and industry knowledge to recruit in-demand professionals for full-time direct hire vacancies – medical laboratory scientists, respiratory therapists, surgical technologists, registered nurses, advanced practice providers, and more. With more baby boomers retiring every year, the need for healthcare professionals was only growing.
In September of 2008, K.A. Recruiting was born. The company began in a small office space with just the two of them – and no clients. The partners started by marketing their services to healthcare facilities needing laboratory professionals.
K.A. has since grown to become a national leader in healthcare recruiting. Today, K.A. Recruiting has hundreds of loyal clients and an extensive network of qualified talent. While the company has grown over the years and expanded its services, one thing has remained constant – a commitment to building a company that serves as an example of loyalty, integrity, and dependability within the healthcare industry.
Over the years, K.A. has been able to expand its permanent recruiting services nationwide beyond just laboratory professionals to assist clients with all their clinical healthcare recruiting needs. From their beginning as a team of two, they have expanded to become a group of highly specialized healthcare recruiters dedicated to helping hundreds of clients across the country fill their clinical healthcare professional needs.
By prioritizing our values, we develop LONG-TERM PARTNERSHIPS with our candidates, clients, and employees!

Why People Choose K.A. Recruiting
I have worked with KA Recruiting for many years. KA is efficient, easy to work with and has been successful in finding qualified applicants meeting the needs of our laboratories. I appreciate all of the assistance they provided and would definitely recommend KC and his team.
I have worked with my share of recruiters over the years and without a doubt, my recruiter and K.A. Recruiting have been the most professional ones that I have had the pleasure to work with. As a career changer, it was no easy task, but my recruiter found a job for me that was a very good fit. I whole-heartedly recommend their services.
My recruiter, from K.A recruiting, has been very helpful in my career journey. She had helped through my interviews and made sure that I would pass and get that job. I have been working as a Medical Laboratory Technologist at a laboratory for over a year now. And I know that without her help, I’m not gonna be in my position right now. Very thanks to her.
In the middle of the pandemic, I had to move quickly to a different state and find a new job. I had the pleasure to speak with a KA recruiter, who immediately set up all the connections for me, she rapidly provided me with a list of jobs available in the area and helped me find what best fitted for me based on our conversations and my background. Because of her efficiency, I was able to find a job immediately and I am very satisfied with my job’s position, location, and coworkers. Thank you to my recruiter and KA recruiting.
I spent months looking for a new job on my own with no luck. Then I responded to an email from a recruiter at KA Recruiting and I had a completely different experience. She was helpful, responded very quickly, and found several job options for me. I wound up applying for a job that was much better suited for me. My recruiter made the entire process easy and stress-free. She even negotiated a higher salary on my behalf. I’m now a few months into my new job and I’m very happy! I would recommend KA Recruiting to anyone looking to find a better job.
Congratulations, Marissa Katsounakis! She placed the Assistant Director of Molecular Diagnostics at a lab in TN. Nice job! At K.A. Recruiting we help our clients
