Popp is a producer and director of The Bold and the Beautiful (1987), having worked on the show since its beginnings and risen through the ranks of the production company.Popp is a native Californian, who grew up watching TV & films, always with an interest in this field. While in college, she majored in communications with an emphasis in radio, television & film and volunteered for as many hands-on internships as she could. For almost three years, Popp drove from Orange County to Lake Arrowhead every Saturday to work as a camera operator and later to direct, edit and produce a church mass which aired on four cable companies for their shut-in viewers.

She eventually held almost every job in the company, becoming an associate director in the mid-1990s before rising to the level of producer (2000) and director (2001) of the long-running series. Popp has also produced music videos for John McCook, Bobbie Eakes & Jeff Trachta and helped launch the newest soap opera Passions (1999) in 1999, directing the second show plus four other full episodes and parts of fifteen others - this being her debut as a director.
