Graham Skelton

Branch Co-Ordinators

Before joining Orchard House, I had a varied background, having worked in retail, web design and finance. I spent a lot of my spare time around animals and discovered I had a bigger passion for animals than accountancy!  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. The combination of administration work and animal handling makes this my perfect job! I have a Border Terrier called Poppy, if you have been to our Hexham branch you will no doubt have heard all about her, seen her on the waiting room TV and heard of her quirkiness! 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!
