Laura Lewis Hollingshead, CTRS, TRS, is the recreation therapist at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City. Laura started with Shriners Hospitals as an intern in 2000, and now runs all of our patient recreation programs.

Laura has a Bachelor of Science in Recreation Management and Youth Leadership, therapeutic recreation emphasis, with a minor in child development, from Brigham Young University. She is nationally certified as a certified therapeutic recreation specialist (CTRS) and certified by the state of Utah as a therapeutic recreation specialist (TRS).

Laura loves that every day is different and that she gets to work with the most amazing kids who make her smile. Her favorite part of working at Shriners Hospitals for Children is being able to provide recreation services, activities and events for patients and their families in which money is not a concern.   

When Laura is not working, she loves to spend time with her family and curl up on her hammock (when the Utah weather cooperates) and read a good book.
