  • Dr. Penny Jacobs – DVM


    Dr. Penny Jacobs graduated from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. She started her veterinary career in Athens, GA and then decided to move to the great Northwest in 2007. She helped re-launch Berry Hill Veterinary Center in 2008 and completed the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS) course in acupuncture soon after. This opened her eyes up to the world of alternative and complementary medicine which she has integrated into her already holistic approach. Dr. Jacobs further developed her holistic education and practice by studying Food Therapy at the Chi Institute and incorporates this nutrition knowledge as well as Chinese herbs and supplements into her daily practice. She also performs surgery and other modalities of traditional medicine like dentistry, diagnostics, and vaccines and her holistic medical education influences those practices as well. When she is not working she enjoys spending time with her husband, friends, Irish Wolfhound and her kitties, hiking, biking, skiing and cooking.

  • Dr. Trish Roisum – DVM


    Dr. Trish’s career quite possibly began when at age 4, she asked her mom if she could go to college to become a bird. A few decades later, she graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. Her adventures as a veterinarian started in rural southern Oregon making small town memories. Large animals, companion animals and wildlife served as teachers and guides. She cherishes those incredible adventures, life altering experiences, and foundational lessons.

    Trish’s recent veterinary practice is focused on companion animals. As a practitioner her goal is to offer all the options available to help your pet live their best life and have their highest health. She is currently licensed to practice veterinary medicine in Oregon and Washington.

    She cherishes each puppy visit as much as she honors each end-of-life transition. She celebrates and respects the bond we form with our four-legged family members. Trish believes that we share our lives with our animal family for a variety of reasons: to support each other’s evolution, to be each other’s teacher, to guide each other, and to learn to love without condition.

    Trish is an Adult Chair life coach (The Owl & The Sage), a Nia white belt, an Awakening Women group temple facilitator, a Vipassana meditator, a volunteer for Not One More Vet, and a Hoffman Process graduate. She lives with her husband Lee, a windsprite named TwylaBird, and five fabulous cats; Fred – The Big Handsome, Shenandoah and Sonoma – The Valley Girls, Dear Brother – The Romantic, and Hickory – The Irreverent.
