He began his working life as a science teacher at his alma mater, the Basseterre High School, where he excelled in sports and academia. Skerritt subsequently held top positions in private enterprise on St. Kitts, such as: Delisle Walwyn & Co. Ltd – a leading travel and tourism company, Blue Water Safaris, the Ocean Terrace Inn Group of Companies and the St. Kitts Bottling Co., Ltd.
