Our CEO and Founder

Stephanie Wheen

Stephanie is a physiotherapist and has been working with children and young people with disabilities since 2002. She also has a brother with a disability so is passionate about disability and exercise. She has been running her successful physio practice, Physio for Children Ltd, in Bristol since 2012. She started Gympanzees in response to discovering the huge lack of opportunities available for her physio clients to exercise in the community in 2016.

Stephanie has won both the Shackleton Leadership Award 2018 and the Great British Entrepreneur Award for Good 2018 for her work with Gympanzees.
