Expert & Compassionate Care for Kids
In addition to providing a wide variety of children’s health services – for ages ranging from newborn to 18 years old – she has a special interest in newborn medicine and breastfeeding.
“The best part of what I do is getting to work with kids,” she says. “They’re so fun, resilient and inspiring. They motivate me every day.”
Dr. Backer is also passionate about developmental pediatrics, which includes working with children who have developmental or behavioral challenges related to conditions such as autism spectrum disorders and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
“I work with families to help them understand what their children may be feeling, even when they can’t communicate it,” she describes. “We work together to identify the best ways to deal with day-to-day challenges so that everyone can have a healthy, fulfilling life.”
In her free time, Dr. Backer likes to spend time with her family, friends and golden retriever named Dakota, and enjoy the bike trails.
