  • Amy Adaniel, BS, RRT, CSA


    Amy Adaniel may have been born and raised in Staten Island, New York, but she is no stranger to the South Florida community. As graduate of Stony Brook University with a Bachelor of Science in Cardiorespiratory Sciences, Amy brought her medical propensity and professionalism down to South Florida and has been serving the communities of Broward and Palm Beach Counties since 1997.

    As a Registered Respiratory Therapist, Amy worked at [now] Boca Regional before deciding to leave practice to pursue ownership of a Delray Beach Home Care Agency franchise, BrightStar Care, with her husband, Jesus, of almost 30 years this year. Since purchasing 15+ years ago, and operating BrightStar Care of Delray Beach since February 2007, Amy has gone above the call of duty to serve her clients in the best ways she can; becoming a Certified Senior Advisor, taking an involved role in the Alzheimer’s Association Southeast Chapter, and becoming an active Board Member for the American Parkinson’s Disease Association (APDA) South Florida Chapter, are just a few of the most prominent examples.

    As the 2015 and 2016 Chair of the West Palm Beach Walk to End Alzheimer’s, Amy was a crucial component in the West Palm Beach Walk to End Alzheimer’s ability to become some of the most successful events in their time. Since the end of her Chair role, Amy has maintained a presence in the Committee as the Mission Chair, in addition to becoming an active Alzheimer’s Advocate on both the State, and Federal levels.

    In addition to her professional and married life, Amy resides in Lake Worth, Florida and is also mother to Shayna, 27, a social worker and will be graduating with her BSN in June 2023, and to Matthew, 26. Amy is dog-mom to Cooper and Lamby, and grand pups Stella and Luna. Amy also enjoys traveling.
