I founded Logistis for Designers with my friend and colleague, Emilie, after discovering our shared passion for working with interior designers. Our goal was to deliver the best available tools to designers so that they may continue to grow in their business and take control of their finances. I love working with designers and helping them achieve financial success! Our team and our clients make this job extremely rewarding for me. When I am not working, I am enjoying time with my family in Santa Barbara. I love hiking, biking, swimming, and traveling, and anything that has to do with the outdoors.
I started working with Marissa in 2017 at her company, Logistis. As our client base is filled with interior designers, we decided to combine our passion for helping designers with opportunity and founded Logistis for Designers (LOGD). I believe that no two interior design businesses are the same. Your accounting services and systems of processes should be tailored specifically to meet the needs of your business. Designers need a partner in managing their business and everything we do at Logistis for Designers aligns with providing a partner for our designers. During my spare time, I enjoy traveling, cooking, yoga, and walking my dog Hank.
After graduating from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, I decided to join the team at Logistis for Designers as one of their bookkeepers. I love working at Logistis for Designers, since the team holds honesty and reliability highly, and those are the two values that I hold onto most. I remember how I loved interior design as a child, and I am excited to bring my expertise in accounting and analytical skills into the industry. When not working, you will find me trying out new recipes, or drawing on my iPad (sometimes I design rooms for fun.)
Hi there! My name is Andie Nelson. Having known Emilie and Marissa for a few years now I am very excited to join the Logistis team. My bookkeeping and accounting background spans almost twenty years and I have specifically worked with interior designers for over the last 3 years. I am also a QuickBooks Certified Pro Advisor. In my spare time, I enjoy training martial arts, cooking, and spending time with my fun and energetic toddler.
SALES TAX ACCOUNTANT
I handle all things sales tax at Logistis for Designers. From filing to advising and researching, I do it all! (including taking those obnoxiously long wait times to speak with your state’s Department of Revenue – FUN!)
I work to make sales tax as straightforward as possible! Trust me, sales tax law is ever-growing + changing, so I understand how tiresome it can become. Also, I am still extremely personable – given the amount of solitude I experience reviewing sales tax codes. When I am not researching sales tax codes + definitions, you’ll probably find me at Disney OR at home with my pups OR adding another plant to my *attempt* at mid-century interior designing.
Hey there, my name is Keyona and I am a bookkeeper at Logistis for Designers. I have always enjoyed accounting and think of my work as a fun puzzle that I get to complete every day. I hold accountability and integrity highly in all aspects of my life and love that LOGD holds the same core values. When I’m not working, I spend most of my time relaxing with my dogs (Charlie & Zulrah), binging true crime podcasts, baking sweet treats, or playing games with family and friends.
Hi, my name is Ruth, and I am a Bookkeeper at Logistis for Designers. I graduated from Southern New Hampshire University in 2020 with my BA in Accounting. I have a passion for numbers & love helping others. Being creative, having integrity & being reliable are very really important to me. I use these values in my career daily because they helped me grow & create the future that I want. That’s why I love working at LOGD because they help me live by these values every day. When I’m not working, I’m enjoying time with my children. We spend most of our time making new arts & crafts to hang on the walls.
Hi, my name is Drea and I am a Bookkeeper/Accounting Assistant at LOGD! I get to handle bookkeeping and day-to-day stuff for the company and I really enjoy it. With my background in management and design, I strive to bring relatable terms and understanding of both sides to bridge gaps between designers and accountants. When I’m not working I stay busy, creating designs for fabrics/wallpaper/clothing/paper goods and more, taking road trips with my husband and 3 dogs in our camper, searching for unique vintage home goods, or hitting the beach. I value honesty, reliability, compassion, and creativity. I love working with LOGD because they help me live by these values every day.
I began my accounting journey at California State University, Long Beach, where I graduated with a degree in business finance. I specialize in financial reporting, tax preparation, and tax planning for small businesses and individuals. My passion for finance and accounting has developed into a forward-thinking, unique, and dynamic perspective as a CPA. I am passionate about forming meaningful relationships with our clients. I want to help designers understand their taxes and finances in a way that helps them best develop and grow their business!
