Before joining Orchard House, I had a varied background, having worked in retail, web design and finance. I spend a lot of my spare time around animals and discovered I had a bigger passion for animals than offices! I love the variation in my job – no two days are the same for me! One minute I will be working on social media and insurance claims and the next assisting the veterinary team. It is very rewarding when you see a happy healthy pet go home.
I have a Border Terrier called Poppy, if you have been to our Hexham branch you will no doubt have heard all about her! I also have a cat called Jess who lives with my dad, as Jess and Poppy don’t see eye to eye! Outside of work I enjoy watching and playing football, hill walking with my terrier and spending time with my wife too – not necessarily in that order!
