Vice President (2015)
Bob Grattan moved to Port Angeles from Montana 40 years ago. He studied education at the University of Montana but ended up in the restaurant business managing and eventually owning the Bushwhacker restaurant. Bob also started Frugals Hamburgers prior to his venture with Bushwhacker. Whenever possible, Bob has strived to hire individuals with developmental disabilities at his restaurants.
Bob is currently retired and wants to return to his first love as an educator. His desire is to combine his background as a business owner and educator to help Clallam Mosaic in any way possible. Bob is one of the newest members of the Clallam Mosaic Board and he looks forward to the challenges ahead!
Sandy Voelz began her career as a cashier at the Handyman Home Center in CA. Sandy quickly worked her way up from cashier to purchasing agent then vault reconciliation. In her subsequent 33 years, Sandy worked for Gilsonite, Inc and upon acquisition for Henry Company. Working for this roof coatings manufacturer, Sandy served in numerous roles varying from bookkeeper/accountant, customer liaison/service, technical data writer for liquid roofing products to HR.
Sandy has 2 children from her first marriage. Additionally, Sandy has two sons and two daughters that she “inherited” with her second marriage to Louie Voelz (married for 33 years).
Sandy’s involvement with Clallam Mosaic (then SNAP), came about because her brother, Stacey Shipley, is developmentally disabled. Her concern was that he progress as far as he could with whatever tools she could find to help him. “It seemed reasonable that I help in the process, which I try to do whenever I find some area I can assist.”
Karla Richardson is a native of Clallam County having been born and raised in Port Angeles.

Karla received a degree in Human Services from Western Washington University in 2001. She was involved in commercial fishing for 40 years until recent retirement from that industry. Karla is currently employed with Morningside as a Job Coach, working with a team to help empower individuals with disabilities access and retain jobs in an inclusive environment within the community. Karla has always had a passion for inclusion and is active in ensuring access for individuals with disabilities to schools, playgrounds and all other aspects of the community.
