Director, Founder & Lead MSk Physiotherapist
Steph 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.
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.
With a background in office management which included 12 years as the Office Manager at a very busy child care centre, Pea Green’s Practice Manager role seemed ideal for her. Although most of the staff are generally better behaved than the children, there is always a buzz around the place, a great sense of fun and lots of making people feel better – so all in all the roles are not too dissimilar.
Although Sara has lived in Bicester for 20 years, she originally hails from the home of the pork pie, Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire, and perhaps that is what inspires one of her favourite pastimes… But moving to Bicester obviously brought out the sweeter side of her heritage as cakes are usually the product of her baking trays. She shares her home life with her husband, two teenage daughters and the dog, all of whom love Mum that little bit more on baking days.
Other interests include travelling, the cinema and the theatre, especially Les Mis, and next time you pop in she would be more than happy to tell you about the years she spent living in the USA.
(Oh and if you are calling for the first time Sara is pronounced Sarah – blame her Mum)
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.
