  • Haley Coomes

    Haley's career in grooming started when she was only ten years old and she began showing Papillions with her mom. She traveled around the country showing, handling and breeding dogs of various breeds. At the age of eighteen her full-time career as a Pet Stylist began. Haley completed the PetSmart Grooming Academy in 2006 and truly found her calling. Haley wants you to know, "Any pet that comes to me to be groomed will be treated with as much love and affection as if they were one of my own pets."

    Haley's love for animals, however, goes far beyond just dogs. Currently she has three dogs named Duke, Kaycee and Kara, as well as two horses. She understands the importance of loving and caring for each pet at home, boarding or the grooming salon.
  • Amanda Paradis


    Growing up with dogs, cats, horses, pigs and chickens, Amanda has always loved animals. She started her career with animals in 2011 where she was a surgery tech at a very successful and fast paced animal hospital. In 2014, she traded in her stethoscope for a pair of shears and hasn’t put them down since.

    From Doodles to Chihuahuas, Amanda has a great eye to make her clients look and feel their best. She finds that her greatest satisfaction is seeing the pet owner’s elated response after a beloved family member as been transformed with their “new doo”. If Amanda isn’t in the salon, you can find her working on her art with her beloved Labradoodle, Robin, at her side.
  • Jennifer Sharp


    Jennifer adds some international flare to the clinic! Hailing from the Caribbean island of Barbados where she grew up, and Antigua where her parents still remain. At 16 she moved to Florida and graduated from Broward Community college with an A.A. Degree in Business Admin. From there she moved to Knoxville to be closer to her sister. Jennifer changed her studies to Wildlife and Fisheries Science and completed 3 years at The University of TN, taking time off to give birth to her amazing daughter Leilu. Although she never returned to UT, choosing instead to live in Antigua for a few years and in Camden SC for a bit, her love for the Smoky Mountains and Knoxville brought her back.

    Jennifer has now settled in the Rocky Hill area with her husband Dan, Leilu and their three dogs, Rogue, Ringo, and Rue. Hopefully you will meet them sometime as they come to work with her every day (the dogs that is)! She also takes our clinic mascot, Rocky, home with her every night, so if you see a little Kia Spectra with a Husky, a Malanois, a Pit Mix, and a very large, white Great Dane in the back, give her a wave. Jennifer has a deep love and respect for animals, and considers herself lucky to have an opportunity to work with them daily.
