Amber Doty, co-owner of Chimney Pro with her husband Dustin, has been in the business as far back as she can remember. Her father, Dennis Dobbs, opened The Fireplace Service Center in 1981, and Amber quickly became interested in the business and started absorbing everything fireplace related.
After finishing school, Amber began working for her dad as the customer service manager.
In 2015, she and her husband started providing chimney sweep service and fireplace repair serving the northwest, Georgia area.
In March of 2017, Amber and Dustin purchased The Fireplace Service Company in Fort Payne and merged their business with her dad’s, now Chimney Pro.
They serve Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia. Dustin is a Certified Chimney Sweep, following in the footsteps of Mr. Dobbs, a CSIA Master Chimney Sweep.
