Luca Ballabio
Debbie Shaw
Practice Manager

I started working at Broadgate in 2001 as part-time receptionist; a job I really enjoyed. We have a fantastic fun team and helping people get better is really rewarding. If I am not here I am likely to be found creating in my kitchen or exercising in the park! Gradually my role has grown and now I manage the practice. I love my leadership role but I really miss the day to day chat with our patients old and new. So, if you see me in my office, please pop your head in and say hello!

Assistant Practice Manager

I began working at Broadgate on reception in October 2013. This was a new work experience for me as I have historically worked in catering, my previous role was store manager at Costa Coffee. I loved the change and enjoy working in the busy environment. The team are friendly and good fun. I have been amazed by some of the health transformations I have witnessed in our patients and am now a total convert to chiropractic. In 2016, I took on the role of Assistant Practice Manager and am looking forward to getting to grips with my new role. In my spare time I am a “reluctant” member of Debbie’s exercise group in the park. I also enjoy walking and eating out.

Admin Manager

I am married with 2 sons and live locally. I started at Broadgate in 2003 as a receptionist, just after my youngest son started school.I previously worked in insurance so the clinic was a refreshing change! I enjoy our relaxed and friendly atmosphere, we have a great team and often have a laugh and socialise together.It’s always nice to get to know our patients and see their progress as they get better.


I have been a receptionist at Broadgate since November 2011 after having worked as a Civil Servant for over 24 years. I have 3 children and live in Horsforth not too far from the clinic. I really like working here as all the staff at the clinic are so easy to get on with and there’s a great atmosphere. The thing I like most about working here, however, is meeting all our patients, getting to know them and helping them to feel better.


I started working here 2011. Before coming to Broadgate I had always worked full time in the Sales Team in the printing industry. I now love working part time as a receptionist as I get to meet lots of interesting people & get on really well with all my colleagues. I have 2 children & my favourite pastime is walking. I try get away most weekends in the Dales or Lakes. I hope to climb Ben Nevis at the end of August this year.


Brought up by the North Yorkshire moors I’m a country girl at heart, however I recently got married and moved into Leeds. I started working at Broadgate in 2012 and really enjoy the relaxed, friendly atmosphere. When I’m not at work you’ll find me socialising with family and friends or out enjoying the countryside!


I have worked part time at Broadgate for 10 years, while studying Medical Genetics and I am currently studying rare genetic disorders for my Master’s degree in Molecular Medicine at Leeds University. My shift at the clinic provides a welcome break from lectures and laboratories! I love chatting to patients, as well as catching up with our lovely team and having regular treatments. I enjoy watching football, yoga and formulating my own skincare products.


I have been with Broadgate since September 2014 after working in the hospitality industry for 13 years. I have been made to feel very welcome here, it’s a friendly working environment and lots of fun. I really enjoy being part of the team and learning about chiropractic. When I am not working I love having time with my family. Having 2 young daughters certainly keeps me on my toes! I enjoy getting out for walk. The Yorkshire scenery reminds me of home in Ireland.

I began working at Broadgate in October 2014. It’s great to work in such a vibrant and friendly atmosphere. I love getting to know the patients and seeing their health improve. In my spare time I love arts and craft, particularly photography, and going for walks in the countryside with my family.
Katie Sykes
I started working at Broadgate in April 2016. As one of the newest members of the team, I have been made to feel very welcome. The team here are really friendly and great to work with.
I am a mum to two young girls so the clinic has given me the opportunity to utilise some different skills and I’m really enjoying my role here.
In my (limited!) spare time I enjoy seeing my friends, socialising and days out with my family.
Jo Crosby
I am married with 3 grown up children and have recent additions to the family of a beautiful granddaughter and a puppy! I have always worked in an office environment, for 25 years in the Insurance industry and the last 12 years as a Civil Servant. I started working part time at Broadgate in May 2016. Everyone is friendly and welcoming here and I am really enjoying being able to meet and get to know patients and therapists face to face.
