Hello! I'm hoping to find an installer in the Beaverton/Portland Oregon area that I can work with on a regular basis? I'm pretty much a one-woman show at the moment, and could really....really use the help.

The type of installs would most likely be Dimensional Lettering, ADA Wayfinding, Alupanel, or Vinyl.
 
Installation is where the money is at. The types of signs you listed are easy to have fabricated and shipped, and for the last few years very competitively priced. Margins are razor thin, as many of these signs can be ordered directly by the customer. Unless your business model is shipping thousands of signs to regional installation, service and maintenance companies, I would strongly encourage doing your own installations!
For example, a 3' x 8' digitally printed banner with hems and grommets retails for around $40.00. You can make about $15 gross profit. Installing the same banner will cost at least $70.00 in most markets, and if you need to do a survey or get a permit you can make even more!

Thanks for responding :) I do (or at least try to) do the majority of my installs in the shop. My main problem is having to shut things down here to go do installs out in the field. It's been difficult to juggle, needing to be here for customers that need to pick up orders, and keeping up with the ones that physically take me away, especially when I'm also working on multiple layouts. It seems like there's never enough time in the day!
