Greetings, kw51gew, and welcome. You asked:

<<I plan on opening a Roth IRA as I made more than $2k being employed. I have also been self-employed this year. Can I fund an additional IRA with funds from my self-employment?>>

Yes, you may use both a Roth IRA and a SEP-IRA which you may open virtually anywhere. The SEP-IRA will allow you to contribute up to 15% of your net self-employed income on a tax-deferred basis subject to a maximum dollar ceiling of $25.5K this year. For details, see IRS Publication 560 (Retirement Plans for Small Business) available for download at
