Empowering older adults to maintain their autonomy with dignity.


The goal of Janco Fiduciary & Estate Services is to serve my clients without judgment or bias. Janco is committed to listening with compassion while maintaining professionalism.​

  • Confidentiality

  • Experienced educator 

  • Ally to LGBTQ community

Jan started out with a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Washington. Years later, she reentered academics studying accounting and launched JANCO. She was already managing the family gardening business, teaching children at a supplemental school, and raising her four sons. Her unusual fluency to collaborate with financial and legal professionals grew out of this eclectic mix. 


Many of her current clients need assistance handling their personal financial affairs. Jan is able to step in, offer support and security which provides peace of mind for them and for their loved ones - many whom are unable to be involved due to various circumstances.

I have built a toolbox of relevant topics based on years of work with older vulnerable adults. My commitment is to educate while being sensitive to my audience. I'm able to set an upbeat, productive tone for a meeting, introducing ideas for change as well as how one might safely age in place. 

Common Topics have included the following:

  • Daily Money Management – 101

  • What to Keep Where

  • Safeguarding Personal Data – 101

  • Working with a Team of Qualified Professionals

  • 3 Things Older Adults Fear Worse than Death

I have spoken to professional groups earning CE credit in Social Work, community groups, families, and at senior centers and retirement homes. I offer opportunities to ask questions, explore next steps and handouts relevant to the topic. Contact me for more information.
