Five Question Friday: Richard Holcomb

It’s Five Question Friday! Meet Richard Holcomb, our Welcome Center supervisor.

How long have you worked at Children’s? Since June of 2012 – a year and a half. 

What drew you to Children’s? A friend, Kendall Munson, convinced me that I would like working at Children’s, and he was correct.
What brings you back to Children’s, day after day? The staff and the children. I work with kind and compassionate people. The culture is positive and accepts that we are human and make mistakes, and most staff, I know work, diligently to provide the best service and care possible. Sometimes when my office door is open, a child will say hello as she/he is passing in the hallway. Or you will get to have a brief interaction with a family – these always remind me why we are here and how wonderful our patients are.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? Almost too difficult to answer, as I would travel most anywhere. New Zealand, Nepal, West Africa and anywhere in Europe again.
When you’re not at work, how do you spend your time? Bicycling, swimming, workout at the gym, reading, traveling.
