Mtn Quail History

MQBS, Inc. opened in 1988 as a bookkeeping service by Marilyn Peterson.  With its principal office in Welches, Oregon, just east of Portland, Oregon, the business has been serving a variety of small businesses, associations, non-profits and individuals with bookkeeping, accounting and a diversity of clerical services throughout northwest Oregon in particular.

O. Eric (“Rick”) Peterson joined the firm in 1994, specializing in much of the system support for both the hardware and software involved in accounting clients work.  He also brought significant auditing skills into service for MQBS, Inc. clients.

Over the years, Mountain Quail Business Services, Inc. has operated business services contracts with various government entities in the areas of visitor information services, temp help services, administrative support management, fulfillment center operations, and the like.

Since 2005, in part due to Marilyn Peterson’s teaching and small business advising work at Mt. Hood Community College, MQBS, Inc.’s work has taken on greater depth in the area of small business planning (business plan writing), funding (grant writing), financial projections (pro formas, cash flow projections) and more.
