Carol Trzcinski

“I enjoy the relational aspect of meeting regularly with clients and helping them make good decisions.”

Carol says she has a “passion for pensions.” (Few people can say that—even fewer might admit to it.) But what Carol really has a passion for is people. Whether her clients, their plan participants, or the international students she and her family welcome in their Columbus home, Carol is dedicated to positive outcomes.

“Our clients say I keep their providers on their toes, but it’s truly a team effort allowing all of us to experience the satisfaction that comes from making a meaningful difference.”

Carol believes in making meaningful differences in all aspects of her life. She loves volunteering in the after-school program at the Dream Center, and she’s led her family to a remote African village to serve there. Next on her list is visiting China and the homes and families of the students Carol and her family have hosted in their home over the years, which might require her to expand her gastronomic preferences to something other than [just about any dish you can name] à la goat cheese.
