Anne French
Owner and All Breed NDGAA Pet Stylist  
 
 
I grew up with a lot of pets, everything from guinea pigs to dogs and cats to horses. I have shown Quarter Horses since I was a teenager and later raised and showed Cutting Horses, competing at the national level.  Animals have always been an important part of my life.
I began my career in the pet industry working summers as a groomer assistant at the early age of fifteen. In 1983 I began working as a kennel technician and veterinary technician which continued for many years. While a vet tech I began grooming pets as well and this eventually turned into grooming pets full time. I have over 33 years grooming experience under my belt.    
I opened Doggone Pretty, Inc. in July 2007 and haven't looked back! My favorite thing about owning Doggone Pretty, Inc. is the relationship I have built with my clients and their pets. I consider them friends and not just customers. Also, I get great pleasure in  taking a dog or cat in need and helping them be happier, healthier pets.
 I hope to instill this in my employees and watch Doggone Pretty grow and prosper.
. I have two Australian Cattle Dogs named Skye and Starr who are my four legged spoiled children as well as a cattle dog foster or two on occasion.
 
I, personally, am only taking a limited number of clients at this time,due to the high demands of operating a successful grooming salon, although I am at the salon on a daily basis overseeing all aspects of day to day operations.
However, we do have four competent, professional stylists to meet all your needs and expectations. Of course, I will always be available to answer any questions you may have.

All Breed Certified Pet Stylist

 
I began my grooming career in 2010 and knew the first day this was going to be the greatest and most satisfying career choice for me. I began working for Doggone Pretty in May, 2014. My knowledge in the field grows almost daily, and it's an absolute joy to see and groom such a variety of personalities and breeds!
I am a local gal growing up just outside Knoxville in Maryville. I have had a love for animals as long as I can remember, especially horses and dogs. Since it's a little bit hard to bring your horse in for grooming I decided to stick with the pups! I have four babies of my own; Dobbie, my handsome pitbull, Minnie, my rambunctious lab mix,  Remmie, my crazy plott hound mix, and Severus,my spunky mini long haired dachshund..
Doggone Pretty has been the best place for me to work. I love how stress free the environment has been, not only for me but your canine companion as well.
I look forward to seeing you soon along with your fur baby!
 


Ali Anderson   
All Breed Certified  Pet Stylist
 I started grooming in 2007, spending my entire career in one salon until joining Doggone Pretty, Inc. I have been extremely pleased with my choice to join the Doggone Pretty family and have noticed a big difference in the dog's behavior, being calmer and more tolerant of the grooming process, as well as the client's seem more comfortable leaving their pet's in our care. I'm very excited to learn from the vast experience of my  environment.
I was born and raised in Blount County where I reside today with my husband, and two German Shepard/Boxer mixes, Otis and Jesse.
I'm very happy carving cute little faces out of shaggy dogs! I would love the opportunity to help your pup become the best they can be!
  
 
 


Jeremy Joiner

I have always loved being around animals, so I jumped at the chance to work with them like this. I love the opportunity to learn all that I can about the different breeds, and of course it's always great to be with the dogs and cats all day! I've been at Doggone Pretty, Inc. since September of 2009. 
Outside of work, I am going to school to get my degree in music education with a focus on vocal performance. 
I have three precious cats, Aria, Sergeant Pepper,and Furiosa.

Hannah Hill
Groomer's Assistant/Receptionist  
  I've always had pets in my life growing up, and I've loved pets as long as I can remember.    
I joined the Doggone Pretty family in July 2014 through my friend, and now  co-worker Jeremy.
I'm always so exited to see all the pets that come through our doors, and I learn so much about them every day!
When I'm not working, I'm usually at home relaxing with my four dogs, Mocha, Java, Max, and Cocoa, or out spending time with friends!






Theresa Beitz
Groomer's Assistant/Receptionist
 
My family have been bringing our fur babies to Anne and Doggone Pretty for many years. When I had the opportunity to work with all the precious puppies and kitties I jumped at the chance!
I really enjoy taking care of the pets and helping our wonderful clients.
I am currently in school to complete my pharmacy tech and then my RN degree and hope to someday use my care and knowledge to help those in need the most.  
When not at work or school, I enjoy spending time with my family, my fantastic Mom, and my handsome son, Gage. I have an adorable long haired chihuahua, Vida, and a furry sibling, Chloe, my Mom's spunky schnauzer!
I look forward to meeting you and your babies!
