You know the feeling when something challenging becomes crystal clear? It’s exciting, energizing, and incredibly motivating.

I started working in the financial services industry at the age of 19 as a college intern. There, I found my passion to help others make smarter financial decisions, which led me to earn the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER designation and serve on the CFP® Board as a Subject Matter Expert.
In 2009, I launched Chladek Wealth Management out of a desire to support clients through every twist and turn in their financial lives with integrity, passion, and expertise. Since starting Chladek Wealth, I have been a recipient of the Five Star Wealth Manager Award for 7 years and counting.
I am also a member of the following professional organizations:
I’m a proud graduate of the University of Nebraska with an undergraduate degree in Finance, and Rockhurst University with an MBA.
When I’m not helping others build and retain wealth, you can find me cheering on the Nebraska Cornhuskers with my THREE daughters, trying to become the next great pitmaster from Kansas City with my BBQ smoker in the backyard, or squeezing in a quick 9 holes of golf on a Sunday night.

Chladek translates to “in the cooling shade.” The name holds deep Czech roots and one of the most powerful symbols in Czech folklore is a birch tree. The prominent tree offers shade, comfort, and protection to those who seek it, and its golden leaves are meant to symbolize fortune and prosperity. It’s our goal to help you make thoughtful, educated, and intentional decisions with your finances so you can find prosperity now and in the future. As Warren Buffet famously said, “someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”
Together, we’ll help you plant the seeds for your financial life, develop the roots, and eventually relax under your own tree, energized by all you’ve accomplished and comforted by the blanket of leaves in the cooling shade.
