My Story

At an early age, I learned the value of education. I was born into a family of educators. My mom, my dad, and my brother are all elementary school teachers. From growing up in an environment constantly surrounded by it, I learned that education is absolutely essential to get from where you are today to where you want to wind up - wherever that may be.

My belief in education is why I started Rolek Retirement Planning. My mission is to help people receive the education they need to make informed decisions about their retirement.
