After founding her first firm, Logistis, Marissa Jones began to notice her interior design clients had more complex accounting needs than most creatives, leading her to co-found Logistis for Designers as a separate, dedicated firm. Marissa is a strategist and entrepreneur at her core—as a business advisor, she helps interior designers define financial best practices for their businesses and tap into areas of growth they’ve been reaching for. Based in Santa Barbara, she aims to set a good example of work-life balance for her two daughters, and strives to ensure her team feels the same way.

Crunching numbers is second nature to Joe, which is why he feels right at home as our sales tax expert. After leaving corporate life, Joe joined our team, excited to have a role where he really gets to be of service and make a difference for his clients. There’s nothing Joe loves more than being proactive and diving into the nitty gritty of sales taxes nuances, simplifying complexities, and giving clients peace of mind plus time back in their day. Joe currently lives on Long Island. When he’s not rooting for a win for the New York Giants, he can be found backpacking in the mountains or on the court playing volleyball and dodgeball.
