Dr. Sharon J. Powell, DVM
I attended the University of Florida for my undergraduate degree with a dual major in Microbiology and Cell Science and Animal Science. After UF, I got accepted to Kansas State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, one of the nation’s oldest schools graduating veterinarians. After graduation, I worked in Oklahoma City where I met my husband, Jon, a die-hard animal LOVER! We moved back to Fort Myers in 1992 where I have worked with small animals ever since!
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.
Shirley – Clinic Cat
Shirley started out as a neighborhood stray cat and has moved up the ranks to residing at Edison Park Animal Hospital. She found Dr. Powell and her husband Jon about 6 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 couch to watch the cars go by outside, plucking Dr. Powell’s carpet, harassing Norman the dog, and receiving head scratches. For all inquiries concerning lizard hunting, please consult Shirley at your next visit!

Jenny – Surgical 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 9 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 at home and when I have free time I enjoy hiking, camping, and fishing.

Jennifer D. – Veterinary Technician
I was born and raised in Ft Myers, FL. Ever since I was little I’ve had a love for all animals and hoped to one day work with them. I have a beagle, Charlie, who is my hiking buddy and a cat, Binx, who I’ve recently adopted. I enjoy being outdoors, playing my ukulele, and spending time with my pets.
I was born and raised in Fort Myers, Florida. I originally went to school for medical reception but have really enjoyed working in the veterinary field. In my free time, I like to crochet, watch musicals, and hang out with my crazy chihuahua and dachshund mix, Princess.
Kat – Veterinary Technician
I graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2014 with a Biology major and Chemistry minor. Shortly after graduation, I started volunteering at Shy Wolf Sanctuary in Naples. It was then that I decided to commit myself to the health and wellbeing of animals. I’m specifically interested in animal behavior and exotics. I love being in a field where you are constantly learning and giving back to the community.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking, baking, gardening, volunteering, kayaking, music and watching scary movies with my partner. I am the proud mother of 2 cats, Sugar Bear (a Bombay mix) and Penelope (tuxedo) and 2 rats, Lilith and Madame Leota.
