Karen A. Friese, P.E.

KFA President & Founder

Karen has a long-standing reputation for her drive, unmatched customer service, and proven results.  She is a confident leader who is personally invested in each client’s success.  As a trusted advisor, she approaches her clients’ unique challenges as if they were her own.

After 20 years of designing and managing a variety of municipal and large, regional water and wastewater projects, Karen left a national engineering firm to establish K Friese & Associates (KFA).  Her vision was to build a civil engineering consulting and design firm devoted to professional, highly skilled, and responsive service.  KFA quickly grew from a home-based business to a company now employing more than 30 people, and serving more than 80 public sector clients.

Karen is an active member of the Austin Area Research Organization and a graduate of Leadership Austin.  She also is on the board of, and an active contributor to, numerous civic, charitable, and professional associations including the Austin Chamber of Commerce, the City of Austin Bond Oversight Committee, I Live Here I Give Here, The University of Texas Performing Arts Directors Circle, and the American Council of Engineering Companies.  Previous service includes appointments to the 2010 Austin Transportation Bond Citizen Task Force and the Austin Water and Wastewater Commission.
