Meet Our Acupuncturists
Ashleigh Taylor-Schmidt L.Ac., MSOM
Ashleigh Taylor-Schmidt, L.Ac., MSOM is the owner and clinic director of Golden Root Acupuncture. Her passion for this medicine first began as a young professional, working a regular 9-5 job. Feeling a sense of void and a constant outpour of stress produced by her job and lifestyle, Ashleigh turned to acupuncture. She noticed a major shift after just the first treatment and within a matter of months, felt less stressed, more energetic and more content with her life. Ashleigh then began the journey of becoming a Practitioner of Acupuncture, with the hopes of bringing others the same life-altering experience.
Michelle Dorak L.Ac
Michelle earned her Master’s degree in acupuncture from the Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, Colorado. Michelle is recognized by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCOAM) as a certified acupuncturist and is licensed by the state of Colorado. Michelle completed the Acupuncturists Without Borders Level 1 Training, Healing Community Trauma, in January of 2018. She feels acupuncture is an excellent way to support the journey of healing from mental, physical, and emotional trauma, and is eager to share this knowledge with the people she cares for. For fun, she loves to get outside with her adorable dog Sammie, go running and swimming, and spend time with family and friends.
