Employee spotlight: Denise and Tina

Denise Nelson and Tina Marso could be described as polar opposites in some ways. But it only makes their business partnership stronger.

Take their background specialities, for instance: Denise comes from a background specializing in accounting and payroll while Tina’s background focuses on tax returns and preparation. Combined, they form a powerful partnership at Accounting Plus to bring both halves together to form a whole.

Denise and Tina first got together in 1993 and have been on a path of growth together since then.


Denise and Tina are the owners of Accounting Plus in Columbia, MO. We're a 100% woman-owned company specializing in accounting and taxes for individuals, small businesses, and nonprofits. | Accounting Plus Inc.

Denise is a Columbia native who graduated from Rock Bridge High School and went on to study accounting at the University of Missouri, where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in 1990. After college, Denise worked as a junior auditor in the Boone County Auditor’s office before founding Accounting Plus in 1992 and moving to Kansas City where she worked as the Director of Finance for a technology company. In 2002, Denise returned to Columbia and joined forces with Tina Marso to form a new and improved version of Accounting Plus.

Today, Denise oversees the accounting and payroll departments and manages general business operations, including marking and growth strategies, IT, and HR and continues to work with several business clients.

Denise is married with two children. Outside of work, she loves golfing, vacationing in the mountains or on the beach with her family, spending weekends at the lake, or curling up with a book, and spending time with loved ones.

Tina joined co-owner Denise at Accounting Plus in 1993 and now heads the Tax Department. She’s been a licensed Enrolled Agent with the IRS since 1989, and has more than 32 years experience preparing tax returns. In addition to several administrative duties, Tina also offers her clients business consulting, bookkeeping and accounting, business setups, tax returns preparation, payroll reporting and tax training. Outside of work, Tina can be found working in her garden, cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, or boating at the Lake of the Ozarks. She loves spending her time off enjoying the company of family and friends.
