I don’t see how people can live without a chiropractor in the house. If I wake up with a muscle cramp, or a kink in my neck, I usually have it taken care of before I get out of bed! As the co-founder of Focus On Health, Krista Kippenberger is vital to our connection with the surrounding community. Many of our patients meet Krista at business networking events. She is the energy behind our news, events, charity drives and social media efforts. Krista is a Rolla, MO native and a Mizzou alumnus. With a background in chemistry and biology, Krista adds a unique perspective to Focus On Health. Her experience in teaching and serving as the department chair of the Pharmacy Technician program at Anthem College led Krista down a path of excellence. In 2009, she was the recipient of the Master Teacher Award.

Krista also implemented philanthropic promotions for her students: “Cash for Cans” helped students pay for books and tuition while the introduction to “The Brian” served as an integral study aid for the Pharmacy Technician Certification exam. Krista has continued her dedication serving Columbia by volunteering for the Central Missouri Humane Society as a foster parent and organizing philanthropic drives for Focus On Health. Krista actually has two full time jobs: managing the clinic and taking care of Kaydence. The two frequent the library together, playing around the house, and enjoy spending time outside when weather allows. In her spare time, Krista enjoys working out at Columbia Strength and Conditioning, DIY home remodeling, reading and taking her two “boys” to the dog park.
