Prior to working at Shriners Hospital, Marni worked in transplant services at the University of Utah, and through the permanent supportive housing system with the Veteran Affairs (VA) Hospital for chronically homeless veterans.

Marni graduated from the University of Utah with her bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology, but it was the social work ideology of social justice and advocacy for the client that appealed to her. She received her Master of Social Work from the University of Utah, also receiving the Blanche Scowcroft Willey award. Marni has been practicing in Salt Lake City as a health social worker since 2011. She received her clinical license in 2014, and her certification from the American Case Managers Association in 2020.

Marni loves working with patients to ensure they know they are heard and cared for. She strives to advocate for those who may not be able to do that for themselves, and follows a strengths-based approach to working with her patients. She loves building relationships with the patients and families who come to Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City for services.

When not “social working,” Marni loves to spend time with her husband, two daughters and dog, Mo, while hiking, snowboarding and exploring the beautiful scenery of Utah.
