Our Staff
Sheila S. Mansfield, D.V.M, is the owner and founding veterinarian of Powell Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Mansfield grew up in New England where her love for her old horse, Queenie, was partly responsible for her career choice. Sheila’s father, a well-known Western-theme artist, took his daughter to observe a veterinarian at work. As they watched a rectal examination being done on a cow. Mr. Scott turned in horror to his daughter-
"You want to do THAT?"
Apparently the answer was yes. Dr. Mansfield graduated from the Ohio State University Veterinary School in 1978 and, after working with another Columbus veterinarian and at the Columbus Veterinary Emergency Service, opened her own practice in the village of Powell (mostly cornfields at that time) in 1982. Some of you remember the tiny building at the Powell Rd. intersection where the Clinic was born. Sheila has a country home shared with her husband, son, two horses named Byron and Charlie, and Rocky the cat.
Dr. Jennifer Sweinhart joined the Powell Veterinary Clinic staff in 1997 and will not be allowed to leave. She graduated from Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 1993. Dr. Sweinhart has a special interest in veterinary dentistry and supervised the acquisition of our ImageVet Plus Dental X-ray system, and the DentalAire Mobile dental unit. Outside of the Clinic (is there a world outside the Clinic?)Dr. Sweinhart has two daughters and an amazing collection of Legos toys.

Dr. Cristina Sherer has been with the clinic since 2005. She earned her bachelor's degree in Animal Science at The Ohio State University and went on to earn her D.V.M. at The Ohio State Veterinary College in 2001. Dr. Sherer has a special interest in exotic mammalian ("pocket pets")medicine, which came about from her past years of breeding and showing rabbits. She now has a small farm where she raises chickens, and has horses, llamas, a dog, four cats and a saltwater reef fish tank (her own personal zoo). This farm is also a State CRP Prairie Preserve site for wildlife. She also enjoys scuba diving and gardening.
Twelve registered veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants complete our staff. The support staff members work with the doctors in the exam room, in surgery, in treatment, at the reception desk and in the wards. You'll even see them outside planting flowers or feeding our bluebirds!
