Our Story

At an early age, I learned the value of education. I was born into a family of educators. My mother, father, and brother are all educators. From growing up in an environment constantly surrounded by it, I learned that education is essential to get from where you are today to wherever you want to 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 planning.
