Dr. Popp completed her Bachelor's of Arts in English from the University of Iowa in 2009 along with a Minor in Dance and Mass Communications. After working for three years at the State of Illinois Appellate Court, she decided to return to school to pursue her passion for natural medicine. Being a dancer all her life, she recognized the importance of taking care of her body, both inside and out. Dr. Popp went on to complete her Doctorate in Chiropractic from the National University of Health Sciences. During this time, Dr. Popp was an employee in a Chiropractic/Functional Medicine office where she gained ample experience. She received hands on training both at school and while working. She also completed over 400 hours of continuing education credits prior to graduating.

After years of hands on experience, Dr. Popp began recognizing patterns in patients and in herself who had injuries that wouldn't heal. Because of this, she shifted her focus to Functional Medicine and Acupuncture after realizing that pain isn't always mechanical. Chronic issues often stem from inside the body. They can be classified as chemical, caused by food intolerances or environmental toxins, or they can be psycho-emotional, where past traumas have yet to be processed. Dr. Popp recognizes the importance of integrating different methods of therapy to treat the whole person and not just the symptom. She has a holistic approach to chiropractic with an emphasis on nutrition, neurology, acupuncture, and rehabilitation.

Dr. Popp recently moved here from the northwest suburbs of Chicago, IL. She enjoys the outdoors and the adventures that Denver provides. Her interests include hiking, camping, skiing, long walks with her dogs, cross-training and yoga. She is excited to work with like-minded practitioners at Highlands Health & Wellness to provide well-rounded care for the Highlands community.
