We believe that every person has a God given purpose and that how they use their money will either serve as a catalyst in fulfilling that purpose or as a culprit in sabotaging it.
Good financial planning is the difference in which potential outcome becomes reality. A wealthentic life is the result of connecting your WEALTH and your authentic WHY and then maintaining that connection over time.
We help people lead wealthentic lives.
HONOR: Love your neighbor as yourself and do the right thing, every time
LISTEN: Seek understanding through empathetic listening
DELIVER: Do what you say and follow through
STEWARD: Leave it better than you found it
DREAM: Think big and pursue excellence

Luke is the founder of Vault Wealth Strategies and is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®). He loves business and enjoys working with those with an entrepreneurial spirit.
He is passionate about helping people relate to their money in a positive and more meaningful way, and to see them align their finances with what they truly value. He is married to Whitney and they have 4 kids: Jax, Truman, Selah (in heaven), and Rayna. They are active in their church community and have a passion to help family units thrive.
Hi, I’m Luke! My wife Whitney and I have 4 kids: Jax, Truman, Selah (who is in heaven), and Rayna. We live south of Norman on a horse ranch. I grew up training & showing horses, although these days I don’t get to ride much. When I’m not at the office I am most likely chasing kiddos! If you have 3 or more young kids you know what I’m talking about, and if you have brothers that are close in age then you REALLY know what I mean! Our main hobby is trying to get places on time without forgetting anything (don’t worry…we won’t be quitting the day jobs anytime soon). We are actively involved in our church. I am a member, and have served on the board, of NormanNEXT and am a member of the National Reining Horse Association. Other things I enjoy are books, road trips, discovering new places to eat, guitars, OU Athletics, dri-fit shirts, and growing beards.
I feel super blessed to do work that I truly enjoy, and think it is really an honor to get to serve people in the capacity that I do. I spent nearly 10 years working for two of the largest financial services institutions in the country. It was great experience and I learned so much during that time. Being independent, however, has allowed me the great joy and peace of mind of knowing that we can adapt quickly to the needs of our clients and that our only concern is their best interest.
I hope that we get a chance to hear your story sometime soon. If I can help in anyway please let me know!

Hello! My wife Kat and I have 3 lovely children: Mason, Janie, and Garrison. Kat and I have a passion for children’s ministry and are heavily involved with our church. God has blessed me so incredibly much with my family! He has taught me so many life lessons through them and others around us, and by combining those lessons with a passion for finances and helping people, God has called me to the financial industry. I am definitely aware of my strengths and know how to maximize them to not just meet the financial needs of our clients, but to ensure we are all being good stewards on this earth! I graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University (Olathe, KS) with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Computer Science where I honed my abilities to be detail oriented and a creative problem solver. I hold a certification as a Strengths Coach with the Nazarene Strengths Institute as well as a certification as a Lean Six Sigma Greenbelt from the University of Oklahoma Lean Institute. I am also actively involved in Kingdom Advisors where I get to network with other advisors and ensure we are all applying biblical principals to our businesses.
I spent my initial year at one of the largest financial service institutions in America and quickly learned that I want to truly holistically serve my clients. At Vault Wealth Strategies we have the ability to do just that, while providing truly unbiased advice that is in your best interest. It is my daily goal and prayer that I live by the “golden rule”: To treat everyone like I want to be treated. That is why my only focus is to work in the best interest of our clients, because that’s exactly what I would want! Whatever your goals and story may be, it is my job to ensure you live into those financially.

Stephen works with local companies in developing and enhancing their corporate retirement plan and employee financial wellness programs. Having over 10 years experience in the investment banking and institutional investment management industries, as well as being a former local business owner himself, he is uniquely suited to help empower local companies to maximize their impact on the financial wellbeing of their employees.
Having been an insider at large financial institutions, Stephen understands, perhaps more than others, the dynamic of the products and services offered by the larger institutions. Therein lies the reason he firmly believes there is a better way than what is industry standard to empower companies and individuals in our community to flourish financially and be good stewards of the financial blessings we receive both now and in retirement!
Believing there is breadth of misinformation and sometimes disinformation, and a lack of appropriate individualized financial education, Stephen is passionate about helping fellow Oklahomans achieve their financial goals, both on an individual and corporate level, now and in retirement.
Hi! I'm Stephen - my wife Allie and I just welcomed our first daughter, Grace Katherine, in November 2019. Grace is very particular and super feisty, so while she's made it somewhat tough on Allie and me thus far, I can't help but love seeing those personality traits develop because I know she'll grow into a strong and determined young woman that will know what she wants and go after it with zeal! I grew up in the south, in a family in which hard work and excellence were expected both academically and athletically. I continued to pursue both rigorously through college and graduate school, developing skills and a work ethic that I continue to reply upon today. I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a BSBA in Financial/Investment Management, and the London School of Economics with a MSc in Economic Development. After spending many years working tirelessly in the investment banking and institutional investment management industries in large financial centers such as Chicago, I was eager to put down roots close to family, find an opportunity in which I could apply my unique experience to help make a positive impact on my local community, and start a family of my own. While my family and I were not born in Oklahoma (besides my wife and brother-in-law), after living here for years, we are proud to call ourselves Oklahomans and can think of no better place to raise our families!
When I'm not helping our community navigate the sometimes confusing landscape of financial markets, investing, and planning for retirement, you can find me being ordered around by a 2 month old baby, spending time with my family, cheering on the Razorbacks and Sooners, staying active, or reading.
Vic's passion is people. His priority is to know clients well and learn about their goals. He uses that knowledge and his expertise to help clients realize success in achieving their short and long term goals.
I am blessed to be married to my beautiful wife Valeeda for more than twenty years. We have five talented children and eleven wonderful grandchildren. We love our community and cherish our friendships. I would rather spend my time talking about all of those folks. For their sakes, I hope to be a lifelong learner and better version of myself every day.
I was initially recruited to be a Financial Advisor by a large Fortune 500 financial services firm. In my time with that firm, I opened and managed by own branch office and developed a wonderful clientele. My successes are wrapped up in the wonderful relationships that have been made over those years.
I joined Vault Wealth Strategies because of their vision to serve people and care for them, which closely aligns with my own thinking and philosophy.
If I can help you focus your goals, have a simple plan, and see you succeed, then that is what I'd love to help you achieve.
As the author Mark Twain once said, " the secret of getting ahead
is getting started !"
Whitney serves as the Communication Manager for Vault. She helps clients stay in the know via educational content & newsletters, timely updates on important changes in the financial planning landscape, as well as other insights on various goings on at Vault.

Hi, I am Whitney. As you may have guessed by my last name I am married to the guy with the beard. We have been married for 12 years and have been blessed with four amazing kiddos. We have two wonderfully wild boys, a sweet angel girl in heaven, and our baby of the family is a sweet and feisty little princess. I am relational by nature so I really enjoy helping Vault stay connected with clients and empower the community to live free financially!
My favorite hobby is spending quality time with my family, but in addition to that I also love writing and photography. We actively serve in the kids ministry and family ministry at our church. We love journeying with people, and seeing people live free and purposeful lives.
We are open to working with anyone, but have found that some of our happiest clients are successful professionals, entrepreneurs, and small business owners. The common theme we find among the clients we add the biggest value to are those who have developed a special skillset that has enabled them to earn a good income. The trap is thinking that they can "earn" their way to financial freedom.
While earning a healthy income is a great start, it is just that - a start. If you are reading this you probably know what I mean.
Often clients come to us when they feel they should be making more progress than they are given their level of income. They are making good money but are frustrated because they aren't gaining the traction they feel they are capable of. They have noble goals, an impact to make, and a legacy to build, but aren't sure what needs to be done to make it all happen. They recognize that while they may have the smarts, they just don't have the time or desire to go at it alone.
Enter Vault Wealth Strategies. We specialize in helping mission-minded world changers who have dedicated their life's work to building & growing service organizations. We help them accelerate that growth and turn their successful earned income into passive and portfolio income so they can invest their life where it matters most.
