Co-Founder and CEO

Boy mom times 2. New Yorker to the bone.

An entrepreneur and business leader at heart, Beryl concepted Poplar in 2017 after personally discovering natural medicine solutions.  Beryl added cannabis to her health and wellness routine and decreased her dependence on pharmaceutical anti anxiety/antidepressants. The journey was challenging and Beryl was inspired to make the natural drug space more easily accessible and understandable - feeling good should be simple!
