Stephanie Owen, Director
MSc, BSc (hons), MRCPod & HCPC registered.
My name is Stephanie Owen and I am the director and owner of SO Podiatry. First and foremost I am passionate about helping the people of Worcestershire to better understand their foot health in order to move pain free. I am a qualified and highly skilled Musculoskeletal (MSK) Podiatrist, HCPC registered, with over 20 years’ experience both in the NHS and private sector. My special interest areas are gait analysis, dynamic function, footwear and tissue stress, and I am member of the Royal College of Podiatry and MSK:UK
I am a qualified podiatrist with a MSc in Clinical Biomechanics (Staffordshire University 2010) , BSc (hons) in Podiatry (Queen Margaret University College 1999) and PgCert in education (National University of Ireland Galway 2009). I teach and deliver educational sessions to health care professionals on podiatry biomechanics and since setting up my Worcester based clinic, SO Podiatry in 2017, I also present to running clubs and specialist sports groups on foot health and education.
I have previously worked at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham within the Sports and Exercise Medicine Department (SEMS).

I believe continual professional Development is key to being able to deliver the best in care for all my clients, so I attend regular conferences and workshops to keep up to date with all things Podiatry and ensure I am using the best technology, backed by science, available.
I love competitive sport (watching and taking part) and have wide experience in sports working with the gently active individual, team player and fun runner right through to the elite athlete. Whether you take your dog for a walk daily, play 5 a side football or netball, are marathon training or perhaps you are climbing Mt Everest I can help you.
“My 13yr old son first saw Stephanie for a biomechanics appointment due to frequent calf strains/pulls, and had been injured for 8 weeks. He is now back to playing football 4 times a week, stronger than ever”

Elizabeth Carrington, Podiatrist
BSc (hons) Podiatric Studies, DPodM, HCPC registered.
I’m Elizabeth, and I am a highly skilled and experienced podiatrist. I’m passionate about treating people and committed to easing a nervous patients' fears. I pride myself on providing the best patient-focused foot care so that you can get back to living your life in comfort.
I qualified in 1990 at The London Foot Hospital and School of Podiatric Medicine, followed by postgraduate study at The University of Brighton. After graduation, I worked in London and across the South East, in both community and hospital podiatry. As the lead podiatrist in multi-disciplinary clinical teams, my interests developed in rheumatology and orthopaedics. My role became increasingly educational delivering informative seminars to clinicians, healthcare professionals and patient groups.
Moving from the NHS, I have benefitted from 20 years of private general practice, have built an extensive skill set and worked in varied clinical settings including GP practices, BUPA hospitals and in Nuffield Health. Meeting with, and treating, a diverse group of patients remains my absolute pleasure. Having relocated to Worcester, it’s great to be part of such a highly regarded team at SO Podiatry.
I am a member of the Royal College of Podiatry and HCPC registered.
During my free time I enjoy painting, walking my greyhound (Jeff) and spending fun time with my family.
Jade Perry, Podiatrist
BSc (Hons) Podiatry MRCPod, HCPC registered.
Hi! I'm Jade, and I graduated in Summer 2021 from Cardiff Metropolitan University.
I love being a podiatrist and am passionate about making a difference in people's lives and well-being.
I previously worked as a beauty therapist in salons and luxury hotels before deciding to take the plunge and further my education by studying for a degree in Podiatry.
I firmly believe it was the best decision I ever made.
I'm told my superpower is gifting everyone with my bubbly, happy personality!
I pride myself on giving every patient the warmest welcome and making sure they receive the best care. You can be confident in putting your feet in my safe hands.
In my spare time, I like to travel and explore new places with my son.
Jen Sands, Virtual Assistant
Hello! I'm Jen.
I love all things admin. I know right, someone's got to!
I work remotely supporting Steph and the team at SO Podiatry with all things admin, email marketing, and website development.
Over the past 15 years, small businesses have worked with me to grow, improve their efficiencies, and enjoy their business again.
I've always been an admin-bod, and if something needs creating, systemising or managing, I'm just a message or phone call away!
Away from work, I'm kept busy with my 3 children, crazy Whippet, and my husband who runs his own carpentry business (yes, my admin skills are put to use there too!).
I also LOVE to play Netball and do so at least once a week in Norwich.
