Mike Ross

Mike was adopted from Peru by Canadian parents and moved to the states at 9 years old. Growing up he learned the value of money hay bailing in summers. Waking up at 4am and working until 10am helped him realize the value of money and time. While in school, Mike remembers getting magazines for foreclosed homes and always wanted to know how houses could be going 2 for 1. This started his desire to understand how real estate and money work. Mike graduated from WSU in 2016 after working full time and going to school part time. With a BA in marketing and a minor in sales, he looked for a company to teach him about real estate, business and money. After interviewing  over 15 companies he found his home with Nathan Ganz and co-founded NW Premier. Mike’s son is his driving force to continue to educate himself, build and maintain a solid reputation in our community, truly building a legacy for his son. He hopes his son will take his efforts to heart or even take over one day. Mike truly believes the more money you make, the more you give back.

Molly Boyl

A Portland Oregon native and self-described “triple threat mom” (twin mom, stepmom, dog mom), Molly is a University of Oregon alum and proud permanent resident of the PNW.

Molly came to bookkeeping by way of running her own business for 10 years. A fascination with novel challenges and a love of community led her into entrepreneurship at 23 when she and a friend quit their day jobs to open a coffee shop. The experience taught her adaptability, grit, and the importance of keeping a tidy set of books!

Her focus at NW Premier is to take bookkeeping off of your plate so that you can spend more of your time running and growing your business and doing the things you love.

 

Diane Moore

The daughter of a Navy Wave and career Naval Officer dad, she has a natural love for travel and has been fortunate to visit many countries but still has many left on her bucket list! She was raised in Hawaii and San Diego, then Central California. She continued her move north and headed to Oregon with her son in 1985. They both feel blessed to call beautiful Oregon home.
.
Diane’s career has been truly varied from owning and operating a Christmas Tree farm, working as a paraprofessional/tax preparer and as client software support for CPA firms, to running her own bookkeeping and payroll business since the 90s. In 2000 she was recruited by a client and spent the next 27 years working as a controller for a privately owned small hydroelectric project, while still operating a reduced-clientele bookkeeping company.
.
Her passions are travel, dogs and kids and a proud mother to her amazing son. She began fostering dogs in 2008 and has fostered over 84 to date for rescues in Lane County. Diane has also been a strong advocate for children, especially those in foster care, and supports CASA in its mission locally.
.
All of this to explain that Diane hates being bored, enjoys staying busy, and has always felt her role as a bookkeeper was to be a support for her clients as they grew larger and more successful, providing them with tools to run their businesses efficiently and knowledgeably. She looks forward to working with you and helping you succeed in your goals!
