The commander of the USS John S. McCain’s instructions to Kimberly Page during her final days of surface warfare training were succinct: “We need you here next week for a short exercise. Pack lightly.”
The “short exercise” the commander referenced ended up as an extended deployment to the Persian Gulf, where Kimberly launched missiles in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. It was also the start of her bold and unexpected journey to where she is today—a systems engineering manager supporting Booz Allen’s Navy/Marine Corps account.
Aboard the USS John S. McCain, Kimberly served as the communications officer, managing external ship communications, as well as the IT networks on board. When a back injury prevented Kimberly from continuing her Navy service, she applied to Booz Allen because of its mission support. Fourteen years, five moves as a military spouse, and two kids later, Kimberly continues to serve her country, build her skills, and mentor new generations of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) professionals at the firm.
“Being a fourth generation Japanese-American and third generation Chinese-American, the encouragement from my family and Asian community motivated me to push boundaries,” says Kimberly. “My Japanese-American high school career counselor introduced me to the idea of pursuing a degree at a military academy—that sparked my interest, then, a Japanese-American retired Air Force colonel made an exception for me to join a Boy Scout Explorer Post focused on military academies and mentored me through the application process.”
When Kimberly applied to the Naval Academy, only 10 percent of women, and an even smaller percentage—less than one percent—of Asian women were represented. But this didn’t deter her, as she was empowered by the opportunity to break stereotypes.
Kimberly credits her leaders and mentors at Booz Allen with her impressive career trajectory. “Through five moves as a military spouse, I’ve been fortunate to continue doing what I love and be impactful no matter where I am. Through each move, I worked with my leaders to either maintain my current alignment or take on a new project that I could execute from the new geography. I’m truly thankful for my leadership’s strong support and each geography’s warm welcome.”
Kimberly also credits Booz Allen’s spirit of collective ingenuity, and ample opportunities to tap in to the “power of us.”
“I lead the firm’s International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Systems Engineering Professional (SEP) certification process and teach the Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) Prep Course,” explains Kimberly. “I enjoy mentoring future generations of technical talent by helping them understand systems thinking—not just how to build the system right, but to also build the right system. I’m changing the world by tackling complex challenges.”
