Director & Lead MSk Physiotherapist
Stephanie is the inspiration, the passion and the driving force behind the Pea Green Physio but she is the first to admit that she could not have created such a home for healthy bodies and healing hands all on her own. The success of her business depended entirely on finding others who were highly qualified, but more importantly, who shared her belief that looking after people’s bodies also meant looking after people.
Specialist MSk Physiotherapist
As a keen sportsman himself, playing rugby for Buckingham Rugby Club, whilst acting as the team’s physiotherapist, Ben’s life revolves around being healthy and he is a keen student of the effects of nutrition on the body. He even married a personal fitness trainer, Louise, in 2011; ensuring that fitness remains very much in the family. They did, however, take some time out to indulge in a spectacular road trip through California and Mexico for their honeymoon (very little rugby out there).
Sara is one of the most experienced members of the team (away from the treatment couch that is) after being a longstanding customer of Steph’s and a massive fan of the practice for many years. It really was a case of having been so impressed with the service she decided that she simply had to join the company.
Sports & Rehabilitation Therapist
Jav is just the sort of person you want to have on your side in a fight – so if you are battling with a sports related injury, which you just can’t seem to shake, then Jav is your man. Amongst his hobbies, pastimes and pursuits he counts boxing, kick-boxing, weight training, gym work, cycling and running. During the winter months he can often be seen snowboarding down snowy-white mountainsides in Europe and Canada, like a laser blast, in his bright yellow (modern and tasteful), one piece ski-suit. A genuine action man.
Bringing catwalk glamour from the 1970s to the reception of the Pea Green offices, Serena has seen it all. From her days as a model to working for The Beatles in St. James’ Street she has many fab stories to tell (and probably a few that she won’t). In recent years, she prefers to spend her time engaged in far more serene, but no less rewarding, pastimes.
Having lived in Oxfordshire for the last twenty-five years, Serena has embraced her love of the countryside. She plays tennis, rides horses, climbs mountains and goes for the occasional bike ride when time allows. Her creative interests include making her garden look beautiful and making her food taste wonderful. As a trained Cordon Bleu chef, she loves cooking and entertaining at home.
While her cooking benefits the rest of the family and anyone who visits, the garden remains the domain of, Fifi Serena’s French Toy Poodle. She describes Fifi as a small dog with a big dog’s attitude and a whole lot of cheeky personality to match.
Working at Pea Green is the perfect role for Serena, where she can combine her interests in people, places, health and enjoyment of life each and every day.

Administrator & Marketing Assistant
Dani is the newest member to our Pea Green family! 🙂
Dani’s main reason for wanting to work at Pea Green Physio is her avid interest in health and fitness as well as her keen drive for wanting to help Pea Green Physio become the best it can be.
Since obtaining a degree in languages, Dani worked in the city of London for several years as a bilingual PA. Having had enough of the rat race, Dani then decided to move to Oxfordshire to experience country life and took a few years out to raise a family.
Despite having now lived in Oxfordshire for several years, we are sure that if you asked her, she would still describe herself as a born and bred Londoner! as they say ‘you can take the girl out of London, but you can’t take London out of the girl!’ 😉
Dani interests include running (practically every day) and spinning, in fact, when she’s not here with us, you’ll probably find her running cross-country style around an oxfordshire field or pedalling away in a local spinning class.
