Dr. Sharon J. Powell, DVM


I attended the University of Florida for my undergraduate degree with a dual major in Micro-biology 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!


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!


Jennifer- Clinic Manager

I was born in Frankfurt, Germany and lived most of life overseas. My father is retired Army and my mother is German. I love getting to know all the different animals and their families at Edison Park! I currently have 2 cats and 2 dogs, and I could not imagine my life without them!


Jenny- Surgical Technician

I grew up on a hobby 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 Fort Myers area over 8 years ago and have had many wonderful experiences working in small animal medicine, shelter medicine, and even volunteering at Shy Wolf Sanctuary. I currently have 3 dogs at home that keep me busy in my free time.


Brooke – Technician Assistant

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 studying to become a certified vet technician. I love being able to work with animals right where I grew up!
