Jackie, Hospital Manager

Hospital Manager, Jackie Jenkins has been with Honegger Animal Clinic since August of 2000. She first worked as a Client Care Specialist, and then in January of 2007 moved into the roll of Hospital Manager. It is exciting for her to lead a team that loves people and their pets. Each of them have a passion of providing the best care possible for each and every one of the pets they see!

Jackie loves the boxer breed and at one time had four of them at once in her home, Marley, Duke, Ruby, and Bandit. Most of her free time she can be found attending one of her seven grandchildren’s sporting events or at the lakes spending time with family & friends.



Brittney Day is a Registered Veterinary Technician at Honegger Animal Clinic. She graduated from International Business College in Fort Wayne, IN. She enjoys being with her two dogs, reading, and being outside spending time with family. At the clinic she takes pride in helping take care of pets, educating clients, and providing dental cleanings for the pets.



Julie Noblitt began her career in 1980 as a registered nurse. Eighteen years later found herself a new calling as an animal nurse at Honegger Animal Clinic. She loves caring for the pets and their parents. She too greatly loves her own pets, a golden retriever “Libby” and several cats. Her hobbies include decorating, landscaping, shopping/dining, summers at the pool with family and friends, and of course spoiling her three wonderful grandchildren. In the future she would like to travel and see more of our great country.



Kaitlin Yeiter is Registered Veterinary Technician at Honegger Animal Clinic. She came to us in January of 2016 on her externship with International Business College in Fort Wayne, IN. After graduating she officially joined our team.

Kaitlin has always loved animals and grew up with several different pets. She was always the kid bringing home birds, bunnies, and other injured animals. Her family’s tradition was to go to the Indiana State Fair every summer, where she always loved to be around the animals, especially in the cow barn (her favorite animal).

From a young age there was no doubt she would follow her passion and land herself in a career involving animal. She and her husband Cody live on the family farm in Southern Wells County with their two indoor cats and several outdoor cats. They would love to start raising animals again in the future and plan on adopting more furry kids. She loves working at the clinic and helping the animals and clients.



Katherine Davidson joined Honegger Animal Clinic as our groomer and has since moved her way to the front desk as our Office Manager/Client Care Specialist. Katherine helps add a smile to your day when you and your pet walk through our doors, or call on the phone.

In Katherine’s spare time she is watching her four boys ride motocross. Katherine’s family is blessed with two dogs, Scrappy & Diesel, and two cats, Bubbles & Bob.



Mary Robles came to work with us at Honegger Animal Clinic in November of 2013 and worked here as a Client Care Specialist for about two years. After about a year off Mary came back to us in July of 2016 and has been working as a Client Care Specialist since.

Mary lives in the Fort Wayne area with her dog Hawkeye who is a retired Canine Companion. Hawkeye loves to come in to be the clinic greeter. Mary has worked in customer service for most of her career and enjoys assisting the community and their pets. Mary enjoys helping Ossian’s pet lovers and being a smiling face to greet everyone who walks in.
