Mackenzie is the daughter of singer John Phillips from The Mamas & The Papas group. She attended Highland Hall Waldorf School, and around this time started to perform in a band with friends. Eventually they were noticed, and Mackenzie would then be given an opportunity to audition for the film “American Graffiti”.

She was 12 years old during the filming of “American Grafitti”, in which she plays Carol Morisson, a young girl who was accidentally picked up by a teenager played by Paul Le Mat. This role earned Mackenzie some popularity, so that soon she would become part of the long-running television show “One Day at a Time” as the teenager Julie Cooper, for which it was reported that she earned around $50,000 a week, improving her net worth considerably. However in 1977, she was arrested for alcohol and drug abuse which led to her being fired from the show. She had to undergo treatment for a year, and was then invited back to “One Day at a Time”. After another year, her drug problem re-surfaced and the show was forced to fire her, writing out her character.

After more treatment, Mackenzie went back to the spotlight as part of The New Mamas and The Papas, and starred in the series “So Weird”, playing the rock star Molly Phillips. During her time with the show, she showcased her musical skills and sang original songs. In 2002, she appeared in the Disney movie “Double Teamed”, and would then make guest appearances in shows including “7th Heaven”, “ER” and “Without a Trace”.

In 2011, for performance in the independent film “Peach Plum Pear”, Mackenzie won the Honorary Best Actress Award from the Female Eye Film Festival in Toronto. Currently, Phillips focuses her efforts as a drug rehab counsellor in California.

For her personal life, Mackenzie was married tto Jeffrey Sessler from 1979 to 1981. She then married guitarist Michael Barakan who’s also known as Shane Fontayne(1996-2000), and they had a son. She has been married to Keith Levenson since 2005. Mackenzie has been troubled by drug abuse most of her life. In 2008, she was arrested at the Los Angeles Airport for possession of heroin and cocaine, and subsequently became part of “Celebrity Rehab”, and talked about her recovery on television. She also wrote a memoir, and revealed that she was originally drugged by her father, and that she had an unsubstantiated sexual relationship that Mackenzie opened up about in interviews. John Phillip’s wife and former relationships denied those claims, but Mackenzie’s siblings believe her.
