About Us

Jenkins Wealth in Denver, Colorado, is a comprehensive wealth management firm. Our mission is to provide efficient investment strategies primarily to individuals to help them grow and protect their money with confidence and planning.

Who We Are


Jenkins Wealth is built on a biblical foundation. We believe that God instructs all of us to be good stewards of our money, and we have faithfully committed ourselves to helping others achieve the success that God has planned for their financial lives.

Our firm and the financial advisors within are dedicated to our fiduciary standard. This is our commitment to uphold a duty of loyalty and care to our clients in everything we do. This is important when seeking counsel for your financial well-being because it means we have an obligation to always look out for your best interest.

The world of investment advice is plagued with conflicts of interest, obscure disclosure, and an overall lack of transparency.

At Jenkins Wealth, we believe in creating TRUST through TRANSPARENCY.

Working with an investment advisor who will act as your fiduciary can help to eliminate many of the problems associated with commission-oriented, product-focused salespeople.

Because a fiduciary is required by law to give full disclosure of how they are paid as well as any conflicts of interest they may have before you do business with them, you as the consumer are in a better position to make an informed decision.

Heather Janson

Vice President of Operations
& Chief Compliance Officer

The biggest thrill Heather gets is when she can see the “aha!” in someone’s eyes. Talking about investments and investment products can be overwhelming and sometimes complicated, which is why she enjoys working with people who may not have much experience in the finance industry and teaching them how things work and fit together.

As the firm’s operations manager and chief compliance officer, Heather works primarily behind the scenes making sure all the puzzle pieces fit together and are executed properly. She is a longtime veteran of the industry with over 20 years of experience, working in various departments and firms over the years, and brings a wide breadth of knowledge and experience.

Heather is a Minnesota native and has been in Colorado since 1995. She, her husband, Vincent, and young son, Ralph, live in the beautiful foothills of Denver. When not chasing their son around, Heather enjoys cooking, camping, and traveling.

Luke Vanzo

Vice President of
Business Development

So, for over 17 years, he has identified and developed talented people in the financial planning arena to do just that. With a concentration on holistic financial planning, Luke has enjoyed success in vision casting with advisors of all tenure and skill levels to help them develop the skills necessary to solve all of their clients’ needs.

Faith is first and foremost for Luke. Outside of his shepherding role at Jenkins Wealth and Market Guard, he enjoys spending time with his wife Nicole and three boys: Eli, Ari, and Kai. You can find them on a mountain trail, riding their bikes, or in the woods somewhere.
