DVM, Educator, and Natural Health Specialist for small and large animals.
I grew up knowing that one day I would become a veterinarian so I could help animals. But as I practiced in the world of conventional medicine, I became increasingly aware that I was treating symptoms and not necessarily the whole animal. I knew there had to be other tools to start addressing the root causes of symptoms, and through that investigation, I discovered holistic medicine.
By combining the best of conventional and holistic approaches to health, I am finally helping animals the way I dreamed of when I was a kid. I live in Monmouth County, NJ with my husband, two dogs, and two children. When I'm not working with patients, you can find me hiking with my family!
"My overall goal with all of my patients is getting to the root cause of a problem, using treatment methods that are sustainable for the animal, and empowering their owners with hope"

Traveling to barns across the state of NJ, Dr. Penny treats horses during every phase of their life. From retired horses to high-level competitors, her primary goal is to support their needs while educating owners on how to maintain between treatments.
Several years ago our dog Cash was hit by an ATV traveling approximately 50 mph. We rushed him to the hospital as he sustained life-threatening injuries from the accident. The neurologists advised us that there was no possibility he would have any use of his front right leg. I knew if anyone could help him she could. Dr. Penny had me bring Cash into her office immediately. She was very patient with him and took the time to get to know him before working on him. She did some chiropractic adjustments and then began acupuncture treatment. We left her office about an hour later and my dog's paralyzed leg began a slight movement as if it was trying to take a step. She looked at me and said with complete confidence, “We’re getting this leg back”. Within 6 months he didn’t even have a limp.
After a particularly hard winter circuit, my jumper came home sore and unhappy. Dr. Rochelle was the first call we made to get Gentleman VHM back to full health, and she did not disappoint. He was back to his normal happy self in time for the spring shows thanks to her diagnostic work and treatment plan. I would recommend her to anyone who wants the best for their animal, whether that be their sport horse or their pet.
Dr. Penny is an indispensable member of Team Mycroft’s support squad, contributing on an on-going basis not only to his health, but also to his happiness.
Dr. Penny and her staff have treated Millie since she was only a year old after having bilateral cruciate surgery. Millie is now a 9-year-old Newfoundland who has been treated for numerous things throughout the years including degenerative arthritis and bilateral elbow dysplasia. However, our most challenging tribulation was 2 years ago when Millie was suddenly diagnosed with a neurological condition called Wobblers causing her to not be able to take even a few steps without falling. With the expertise of Dr Rochelle, we found a treatment plan that works amazingly, and I am happy to say she now takes long walks, runs, plays, and even climbs steps.
All three of my boys compete in strenuous sports. They are kept sound and happy.
I found Dr. Penny over 10 years ago when my older dog, Hilapea, had cancer. Dr. Penny helped her live another 2 years with supported care of acupuncture and chiropractic along with Western Medicine.
I am a horse trainer and started to have Dr. Penny come out to the farm to work on my horses, as well as my client’s horses. She has become one of the most important members of my team. The horses love her and she helps keep them feeling comfortable and in top competitive shape. Dr. Penny is one of the kindest people I know. I trust her with all my animals and I cannot recommend her enough.
