Dr. Liz Roper L.Ac DACM - Founder of The Medicine Tree

Dr. Liz Roper is a passionate practitioner and the driving force behind The Medicine Tree, a holistic healthcare practice dedicated to providing comprehensive care for her patients. With a strong background in Organic Chemistry and a pre-med focus, Dr. Roper's journey towards natural health and wellbeing began with a deep curiosity for understanding the intricate workings of the human body.

Driven by a desire to bridge the gap in modern healthcare, Dr. Roper embarked on a path of exploration and discovery, ultimately leading her to study Classical Chinese Medicine. Her pursuit of knowledge took her to the esteemed Academy for Five Element Acupuncture in Gainesville, FL, where she completed an intensive graduate program in just 3.5 years, earning her Masters of Science in Acupuncture. In addition, she obtained certification in Chinese Herbology, further expanding her expertise in holistic healing.

Committed to providing the highest standard of care, Dr. Roper became nationally certified as a Diplomate of Acupuncture by the NCCAOM and continues to uphold this distinction through her unwavering dedication to ongoing education and professional development.

Elevating her commitment to her patients and the field of medicine, Dr. Roper pursued and achieved her Doctorate in Chinese Medicine from the esteemed Pacific College of Health and Science in April 2020. This advanced degree empowers her to offer an even greater depth of expertise and a holistic approach to patient care.

Dr. Roper, along with her family, has made Golden, CO their home. Originally from the outskirts of Pittsburgh, PA, she explored various regions of Georgia during her twenties before discovering her heart's home in the beauty of Colorado in 2014. Outside of her professional endeavors, Dr. Roper finds joy in mountain biking, skiing, and indulging in live music performances. Painting serves as her creative outlet and source of relaxation, but her greatest happiness stems from spending quality time with loved ones, embarking on outdoor adventures, and serving her community.

With her comprehensive knowledge, compassionate approach, and dedication to each patient's wellbeing, Dr. Liz Roper is committed to empowering individuals on their journey towards optimal health and a balanced life.
