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!

Jenny Marotzke – 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.

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.
