Dr. Sharon J. Powell, DVM
My husband and I enjoy our 2 dogs, Emma and Norman. Both are rescues and are horribly spoiled daily! I could never imagine a happy life without animal companions. I need a 12 step program to help me with the abundance of treats that I give to the pets I see each day in the exam rooms!! 🐾 😊 I want the pets to enjoy coming in to our clinic.
I love gardening in my spare time typically incorporating plants with animal names like Rabbit Ears, Cat Whiskers, String of Dolphins, etc. and pollinator-friendly plants.
I have the absolutely most caring staff and best pet owners as clients. Our clinic is so blessed.
We are huge supporters of our Lee County animal abuse task force and Sheriff Carmine Marceno’s zero tolerance for animal abuse and neglect!
Dr. Nicole Indrisek
After earning my undergraduate degree in biology at Florida Gulf Coast University, I then attended the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine. I graduated vet school in 2018, and moved back down to Southwest Florida to begin practicing small animal medicine. I met my husband, Bryan, at my first clinic out of school, where he worked as a veterinary surgical technician. We now live in Punta Gorda with two dogs and four cats. The part of veterinary medicine I enjoy the most is sharing knowledge with pet parents so they can better care for their canine and feline family members. When not at work, I enjoy biking, reading mysteries, and traveling to national parks.
Jennifer F. – Clinic Manager
I was born in Frankfurt, Germany. My father was in the Army and my mom is German so we moved a lot between Germany and the United States. I moved to Cape Coral, Florida in 1996 and have been here ever since. I currently have 1 yorkie and 1 long-haired cat. I enjoy reading, watching Netflix, fishing, cooking and walking nature trails in our area.
Jenny – Surgical-Lead Technician
I grew up on a farm in North Dakota so I was always surrounded by many different animals. I knew I wanted to make a career out of working with them someday. I moved to the Ft. Myers area over 12 years ago and have had many wonderful experiences working in small animal medicine, shelter medicine and even volunteering at Shy Wolf Sanctuary. My main passion in this field is surgery and animal behavior. I currently have 3 dogs and a bearded dragon at home and when I have free time I enjoy hiking, camping, and spending time with family.
Brooke – Certified Veterinary Technician
I was born and raised in Ft. Myers and grew up in the Edison Park area. Ever since I was young I have had a passion to work with and care for animals. I am currently a Certified Veterinarian Technician which I am very proud of. I love being able to work with animals right where I grew up! I currently share my home with my dog, Heidi, who I adopted from LCDAS about 7 years ago. When I’m not working I love to go on hiking trails around town with Heidi, draw, and relax with friends.
Katie – Kennel Technician
I was born and raised in Ft. Myers, FL. I have been working with small animals since 2006, and I find it very rewarding. I have a cockapoo named Poppy. I enjoy reading, movies and spending time with my family and dog.
Kat – Veterinary Technician
I joined the Edison Park Team in September 2021. My favorite part about being a vet tech is getting to help the community and educate owners about how to best care for their pet’s health and wellness. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, cooking and baking, volunteering, kayaking and watching scary movies with my partner. I have 3 cats: Sugar Bear (Bombay mix), Spatz (Siamese mix) and Penelope (Domestic Shorthair); and 3 rats: Madame Leota, Lilith and Lydia.
Olivia – Veterinary Technician
I’m originally from Michigan where I worked at another animal clinic for 3 years. I’m currently studying to be a certified veterinary technician and hope to complete this within the next year. I have a 17 year old cat named Frankie and back in Michigan I have 2 pit/lab mix babies, Bo and Nemo.
Nyah Castellon – Veterinary Technician
I am currently in school, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Animal Health & Behavior. I plan on one day working in the medical department of a wildlife facility to help animals within captivity and help mend those that have a chance of going back to the wild. I have 3 dogs at home; Kloe (Yorkie), Hope (Pitty mix), and Chance (Florida Cur). When I am not with them or my family, I spend my free time doing homework, trying new foods, watching Disney movies, and volunteering at wildlife centers with my other half to learn more about the animals and their daily care.
Tina Frisbie – Receptionist
I was born in Germany but moved frequently as my dad was in the Military, but consider Bonney Lake, Washington my hometown. My husband recently retired from the Army and we decided to settle in Fort Myers FL. I have previously worked in a small animal clinic as well as an animal ER. I have 2 children and one grumpy cat
Shirley – Clinic Cat
Shirley started out as a neighborhood stray cat and moved up the ranks to residing at Edison Park Animal Hospital. She found Dr. Powell and her husband Jon about 9 years ago and promptly claimed their garage as her own. When the “clinic cat” position became available, Shirley’s charming personality landed her the job. Shirley enjoys curling up on the front desk and getting lots of head scratches from our clients and staff members. For all inquiries concerning lizard hunting, please consult Shirley at your next visit!
Miles – the other clinic cat
Miles is a new member of our hospital family. He was also a stray that won the hearts of Dr Powell and her husband Jon. His hobbies include tormenting Shirley, being a door greeter, saying hi to the cats in their carriers that come in, watching the birds from the cat room window, and swatting his toys around the hospital. He also enjoys head scratches but to a minimum.
Kitty Kitty Grey Fuzz
Kitty Kitty came to us a few months ago, he was a stray living in a nearby neighborhood. He is currently our part-time Winter Season helper and his hobbies include chasing laser lights, playing with toys and hanging out with the technicians.
