Anna Bennett

Interior Designer

Anna is a lifelong Gainesville gal and a graduate of the University of Georgia, where she received her Bachelor of Family and Consumer Science in furnishings and interiors. She has a seamstress background in high-end home soft goods as well as experience being a personal business assistant.

Anna approaches interior design in a purposeful and personal manner. She feels that clients’ spaces should be a direct reflection of their personalities and values, all while being highly functional and approachable. Since joining the House Dressing team in 2017, she’s enjoyed being able to create spaces that are not only full of beautiful things, but that also stimulate positive change.

Anna has played the violin since the age of four and has been a private violin instructor since the age of 14. She is an active member of her community and is a regular volunteer at Hopewell Baptist Church. In her free time she enjoys traveling, hiking, sewing, drawing, and spending time with her family and friends. A few of her favorite things are strawberries, wildflowers, and the feeling of the afternoon sun on her face. Although she is passionate about all of these aspects of her life, she believes that her true purpose is found in her relationship with the Lord and therefore, strives to glorify Him in all that she does.

McKenna Henry

Design Project Manager

A proud local of Gainesville, McKenna didn’t go far when it came time for college, attending the University of North Georgia in Dahlonega. She graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor in business administration and marketing and soon teamed up with a few different local, small businesses, working as a consultant on everything from buying and inventory management to merchandising and more.

After a few years, she found herself at a local community bank in a customer service role while waiting and hoping for the perfect opportunity to open up in her dream field of interior design. With small business experience under her belt and a passion for design, McKenna happily landed at House Dressing. Tasked with keeping each project as orderly as possible, McKenna loves that every day she has the ability to combine management with creativity and design!

McKenna is a self-proclaimed “crazy dog lady” and dog mom to her spoiled two-year-old dachshund, Frankie. She is a lover of traveling, music and a good cold Coca-Cola. She is happiest when surrounded by friends, family and good food!

Elizabeth Embry

Shop Manager & Associate Designer

Elizabeth, or “EE” as we affectionately call her, grew up in south Georgia, but Gainesville has been her home for over 25 years. She married Cooper after dating all through college and was transplanted to north Georgia permanently. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a bachelor’s degree in furnishings and interiors, Elizabeth worked at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center. Once Elizabeth and Cooper started a family, she decided to stay at home with her children but continued to be involved in design. She painted signs and furniture and had a handful of clients that allowed her to stay creative! Now that her youngest is in high school, she has jumped back into the design world full time.

Elizabeth enjoys spending time with family and friends. She loves being a part of the Gainesville community. Although it is not a small town anymore, the connections and friendships make it feel smaller. It is home! Gainesville has been a wonderful place for her and her husband to raise their three children, Charters, Price and Margaret.

Hoppy

Greeter & Child Entertainer

Hoppy joined the House Dressing team in June 2016 when she was old enough to know not to chew on things and hop on furniture, and her friendly tail wags have been greeting guests ever since.

While you are shopping or consulting with one of our designers, you are most likely to find Hoppy resting in her custom-made dog bed or begging for dog bones at Gainesville Paint. She also revels in the attention she receives from our customers, especially children. Hoppy loves coming to work with her mom and looks forward to seeing you in the shop soon.

Outside of the time she spends at House Dressing, Hoppy enjoys spending time on the lake with her family and playing with her brother, Knowles, sister, Carden, and puppy-brother, Jake.
