Hyejin Hickey wears many hats at Booz Allen. Among her multiple roles, she’s an adjunct facilitator for the firm’s work at the Air Force Culture and Language Center, supporting Indo-Pacific generals and others in the Air Force community with her knowledge of the Korean language and culture. She’s a final quality editor for the firm’s United States Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM) Defense Forum translation project. She also leads the firm’s regional recruiting, retention, and hiring strategy. And, for the Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) knowledge management team, she runs cost analyses for Booz Allen’s proposals.
That’s why it's hard to believe Hyejin ever felt stagnant in her career. But professional growth can be challenging as an immigrant and as a military spouse. Frequent moves often result in a lack of continuity, resources, connections, and opportunity.
Hyejin shares her story, including how Booz Allen has helped her expand her experiences, expertise, and vision of what’s possible.
