In 2011, after recovering from her knee injury and looking to have more opportunities to play to gain match practice,[1] she joined FF USV Jena, following former Duisburg coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg, where she signed a one-year contract.[10] She played 25 matches (22 league and 3 cup) at the club during the 2011–12 season.[9]

In 2012 she left FF USV Jena to join FSV Gütersloh 2009.[11][12] She played 19 matches at the club (18 league and 1 cup) during the 2012–13 season.[9]

On 30 May 2013, Roelvink returned to the Netherlands and signed for BeNe League club PSV/FC Eindhoven.[13][14] She played 22 league matches for the club at the 2012–13 season.[15]

On 11 June 2014, her retirement was announced as she was looking to start a professional career outside of football.[16]
