My Scratch Offs Founder and Creative Executive Karen Tinsley-Sroka partners world experience and love of design to bring fresh products to customers. She has a unique set of talents that set the stage for her US company, and now looks to use the International market to take My Scratch Offs to the next level.
Serving in the Air Force for 6 years, she traveled the world, experiencing firsthand what other cultures have to offer. Part of an aeromedical evacuation team that focused on recovery efforts of bombing victims in Kenya and Tanzania, Karen learned what would serve her well throughout her life. Perseverance.
Karen then looked to put down roots in the US and focus on her first love, design. She freelanced a bit, until she stumbled across scratch off stickers and cards. While most think of lottery tickets, scratch offs offer more, from business promotional cards to fun kid’s chore charts. Karen noticed non-lottery scratch offs were not widely available to the average consumer.
In 2008, My Scratch Offs was founded. A company that started in a living room is now a leader in their niche. A strong advocate for women in the workforce, Karen mentored other women through her company. Women transform everything they touch, and it’s her mission to bring that concept to as many new customers as possible.
