Practice/Research Interests

Dr. Backus maintains a small practice with Providence ElderPlace, a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. She spends most of her time on pharmacotherapy for older adults who live independently in or near Hillsboro, often meeting with patients in their homes to assist them with managing their pharmacotherapy regimen.

Outside the Classroom

Dr. Backus enjoys playing trumpet, piano, and singing. She also loves anything and everything that is Star Wars. These passions often find their way into the classroom, so don't be too surprised if she lightens the mood with a little karaoke or by playing some of the best Star Wars videos on the internet (check You Tube for the Star Wars bad lip synch videos!) She and her husband have made Hillsboro and Pacific University community their home, after moving cross-country from the Midwest.
