“How can we help you?”
This is the main question we ask here at DOTomation when speaking with folks in the industry, and providing a useful and unparalleled answer is the ultimate goal of DOTomation’s Owner, Ms. Karen Morgan, PE (Inactive) (TX #93643).
Her desire is to provide the highest quality STRATEGY CONSULTING services to help firms win TxDOT contracts from the PEPS Division.
Karen (DOTomation's Owner and Lead Senior Strategist) graduated from Texas A&M University in 1999 with a B.S. in Civil Engineering (Structural specialty). She worked in TxDOT’s Bridge Division until 2001, performing fracture-critical inspections and analysis of bridges throughout Texas. After that, she ventured into consulting, where she spent over a decade in the engineering industry successfully delivering transportation projects in central Texas (see her LinkedIn bio) as design lead and/or Transportation PM.
During her time serving as a Project Manager, she started working on proposals. She always enjoyed crafting the teams to ensure the absolute best staff/firms were proposed to support the potential client, and loved the challenge of finding the right words/phrases to best highlight the team’s expertise. Karen had the opportunity in 2013 to move to Marketing, where she began working almost exclusively on TxDOT proposals.
As she confesses, she “nerds out” on TxDOT proposals and strategy. Karen loves strategic teaming / staffing / positioning discussions with clients, and thoroughly enjoys the challenge of a good Q&R re-write.
As a native Texan, Karen’s feet are firmly planted here and plans to never leave this great state. You can see Karen’s LinkedIn bio here.
