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.

Dr. Mary Nicholson

Dr. Mary Nicholson was born in Mississippi and grew up in Mobile, Alabama for a time. She would spend many weekends as a child on her grandparents’ country property; some of her first memories include her grandfather placing her in the pen with his foxhounds and going for rides along with him on the back of his horse. Dr. Nicholson always wanted to learn more about the care of pets so that she could best tend to her own companions—a career as a veterinarian simply made sense!

She began volunteering at an animal shelter when she was 20 years old, and it wasn’t long before her volunteer work turned into a paying job. She then enrolled in Hinds Junior College’s veterinary technology program, graduating with her degree in applied science and passing her state certification to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician. After working that summer as a Tech, she returned to junior college in the fall to finish her prerequisite coursework for veterinary school.

Dr. Nicholson attended Mississippi State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, earning her doctoral degree in 1991 and practicing in mixed-animal care in the northeastern part of the state for two years. She then relocated to Homestead, Florida for a year before returning to Mississippi again—Dr. Nicholson would spend the next several years traveling back and forth between Florida and Mississippi, using her dual licenses to provide relief services to veterinarians in both states. In 1995, she joined a feline-only practice in Fort Myers, Florida. Over the years, she’s worked in exotic clinics, animal shelters, spay-and-neuter clinics, and even at a Greyhound racing track! Dr. Nicholson also launched her own house-call practice in 2006 while still performing relief veterinary work.

She has special interests in behavioral medicine and client education, and she especially loves learning new things. She holds special certifications in applied clinical behavioral medicine, advanced clinical behavioral medicine and feline medicine.

In her time away from work, Dr. Nicholson enjoys working in her yard, observing wildlife, reading, visiting the Smoky Mountains whenever the opportunity presents itself, and spending time with her own animal friends at home. She has a multitude of cats, two pet rabbits who go by Buckley and Jenny, and a rescued mixed-breed dog named Oliver.

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

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.

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.

Lauar Reynolds – Veterinary Technician

I became interested in veterinary medicine after moving to Fort Myers from Central Indiana! I got my start as a receptionist almost 6 years ago then worked my way up to being an assistant; my favorite parts about this career are bonding with fur-babies and their parents and assisting in surgery. I am hoping to begin veterinary nursing school through Purdue University in the fall! At home I’m the “pawrent” of 5 rambunctious cats and a German Shepherd who thinks he’s the 6th cat. I cannot wait to learn more from the staff here at Edison Park!

Lizbeth Garcia – Veterinary Technician

I was born and raised in Florida. Being a part of the vet community has always been my biggest dream as a child. I love any animal from mammal, exotic, cattle and even reptile. I have been in the field for almost 3 years now & am super proud of myself with how far I’ve come. I graduated college as a Certified Veterinary Assistant in 2021 and am currently enrolled and in the process of becoming a Certified Veterinary Technician. I have 4 pitties: Racks, Bullet, Diamond & Minnie. 2 cats: Yoda & Mama. 1 bird: Trappy. On my days off, I like to spend time with my daughter, shopping & just enjoying life. I am super happy to continue my growth in this field and learn along my friends here at Edison Park.

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

Megan Church – Receptionist

Working as a veterinary technician for a number of years and now receptionist, I’ve always had a love for animals and seeing your pets is my favorite part of the day. I grew up in Elmwood Park, IL and moved to Fort Myers recently to be closer to family. I live with my husband and dog Bandit who is appropriately named because he loves stealing everything.

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 was a stray that won the hearts of Dr Powell and her husband Jon. His hobbies include tormenting Shirley, spilling Shirley’s water, 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 was a stray living in a nearby neighborhood who won the hearts of Dr. Powell and her husband Jon. Shortly thereafter, he also became part of our clinic family. He likes to chase laser lights, play with his buddy Miles, lay in his window bed and hang out with our technicians. He also likes to eat dog treats when given the chance. 😊
