Her background is in newswriting and features, but if an overabundance of caffeine is consumed, she has been known to write a humor piece or two. Backstrom attended various Christian churches growing up in Spokane and currently attends First Covenant Church, an inner-city ministry in downtown Spokane.

“Faith isn’t about words on a page or meeting every Sunday. It’s what we do in every moment in between church services — how we treat others, how we spend our money and time, the relationships we form with others. That’s what people remember. God means nothing to others watching us if our actions don’t back up our beliefs,” she said.
