Mae Nelson

Mae Nelson earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration from Thomas Edison State College in December of 2012.

Since graduating she has completed additional QuickBooks training courses and is currently in the process of becoming a certified tax preparer. In addition to all things accounting related, Mae enjoys traveling with her husband, spending time with family, being outdoors, and getting lost in a good book.

Emily Davis

Emily graduated from Biola University in 2014 and has been passionate about numbers since her youth, when she discovered an affinity for calculus. Needless to say, her love of mathematical problem solving makes her a valuable member of the Infusion Accounting team. Growing up on the Central Coast of California, Emily also enjoys the outdoors, whether hiking in the mountains, coaching volleyball on a sunny beach, or just a stroll by the river with her family. Emily is currently living in Idaho with her husband, sweet puppy, and soon to be baby boy!

Lindsay Bright

Client Account Manager

Lindsay has worked in finance and accounting for the past 7 years in a variety of settings such as nonprofit, corporate banking, and small startup businesses. She graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2009 with a Bachelors Degree in Mass Communications, and decided to pursue her Post-Bach Accounting Certificate in 2013 after a former co-worker inadvertently helped her discover her love of accounting. She recently became Quickbooks certified, and is excited to bring that knowledge and enthusiasm to the Infusion Accounting team.

When Lindsay is not crunching numbers and organizing data, she enjoys spending time with her family in beautiful Richmond Virginia, playing the violin and guitar, and going to dance class.
