Marni Brunstetter, LCSW

Marni Brunstetter, LCSW, is a licensed clinical social worker specializing in hospital social work. She began her work with Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City in 2019. 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.

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 looks forward to building relationships with the patients and families who come to Shriners Hospitals for Children for services.

When not “social working,” Marni loves to spend time with her husband and two daughters in the beautiful scenery of Utah, hiking, snowboarding or just participating in all the local activities and events available in Salt Lake City.
