Debbie Kenny

Managing Member

Being in business is almost second nature for Debbie Kenny because she comes from a family of entrepreneurs, including both parents being very successful business owners. Debbie is one of the founding members of Alianza Family Services, LLC and her joy since 2003 has been to support individuals with developmental disabilities to enjoy their best life. While she strives to consistently deliver outstanding results, her energy has been primarily focused on supporting caregivers to be successful. At Alianza Family Services, Debbie watch aging parents and caregivers face new challenges with everyday activities. At the same time, Debbie became the primary support for her parents as they age and realized the tremendous need to help families care for their loved ones with dignity and respect. As she searched for ways to help, she found Right at Home and realized this company shared her passion for improving the quality of life for others. Family is what balances Debbie. She is completely dedicated to her husband, Chris Kenny, and her two boys, Thomas and Conor Kenny. Debbie is equally passionate about animals, especially dogs, and is known to bring home strays despite her husband’s wishes. For her own mental health, she likes to ski, hike, ride bikes, scrapbook and take pictures.

Sophia Melendez

Employee Care Manager

Sophia began her healthcare journey at the age of 17, when she first started off as a caregiver in various assisted living facilities.

She graduated from New Mexico State University with her Associate’s in Science, and is currently pursuing her nursing license in dual partnership with CNM and UNM here in Albuquerque.
