Dalaney McKenzieBranch Manager / Patient CoordinatorMy name is Dalaney McKenzie and I grew up in Livermore with my family of eight. I received my B.A. from University of the Pacific while being a Children’s Director at Sunset Community Church, teaching and leading a large group of volunteers. After five years of enjoying that position, I became a preschool teacher and an “After-School-Care Program” Director. I have always had a passion for serving people and making people feel valued, which is why I love BrightStar! My husband, who is a first responder, and I are parents to a baby girl, who we are totally in love with. When I’m not creating or finding something to organize, I am hanging out with my family—relaxing or traveling. I am excited to work with you and help provide excellent care to meet your unique needs.
