She and her husband, Tyler, have a cat named Buzz. She is very crafty and enjoys reading in her spare time. On her days away she enjoys instructing tumbling classes.

Donna Stevenson-Office Manager

Donna has been with Southgate since 2018. One of my favorite parts of my job is working with all the fur babies. I love when they walk through the door and give kisses or make it known they have arrived. Every pet has its own personality and getting to know each one is always a neat experience.

My husband is Rich and we have two sons Mason and Garrett. I am truly blessed that my family loves animals too. We have 6 dogs: Jayson, Kody, Develyn, Gabby, Dalton and Knox. We have 7 cats: Sheldon, Eclipse, Ellie May, Buddy, Morgan, Growler and Julia. We also have 2 pygmy goats Tilly and Ollie, 2 Turkeys Gretel and Spots and a few chickens. I enjoy being with my animals and taking them to different places with me. When I am not at work I love being outside hiking, kayaking, camping, and different crafting projects.

Michelle Zumbrun-Veterinary Technician

Michelle has been with Southgate Veterinary Clinic since 2018 after graduating from the Vet Tech Institute of Bradford. Michelle loves working as a Registered Veterinary Technician because she feels a sense of pride in being an advocate for our furry family members who cannot speak for themselves. She loves providing care for the pets that provide us with such unconditional love. In her free time, she loves traveling with her husband Eric, and their two fur kids Roxie and Oliver, as well as sxs riding, camping, hiking and spending time with her family.


I have an Associate in science from Vincennes University. I worked with animals off and on through school for 5 years and I’m now the second receptionist at Southgate Vet Clinic. I like being outside kayaking and mushroom hunting.
