Karen Trisko, former owner of award-winning Online Trading Academy Colorado (2008-2012), became an active trader and investor in 2005 due to dissatisfaction with her financial advisor’s results. After attending Online Trading Academy’s courses, her results improved dramatically. Her mission is to empower people to have a more prosperous life by teaching them how the markets really work and how to profit from that knowledge using stock/ETFs, options, futures or forex. She loves the lifestyle that trading affords – a portable, recession-proof business with no employees, no customers and miniscule recurring costs.

Karen hosted a morning financial radio show in Denver and appeared many times on Denver TV shows discussing trading and investing. The Colorado Council for Economic Education honored Karen in 2012 for awarding OTA course scholarships to young persons and for financial contributions.

Karen previously owned three businesses and led several other organizations in various industries. She taught courses in MBA and BS degree programs for 10 years at the University of Phoenix Southern California Campuses. After selling OTA Colorado, she served as a consultant on various projects with OTA for 2 years and now serves as an OTA Instructor.
