Our Team

David

David is a native of Michigan and earned his bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University. David and Amy met at MSU and then lived in Spartanburg, South Carolina while Amy attended chiropractic school.  In April of 2008, David and Amy moved to Coeur d Alene and started Spoelstra Family Chiropractic. At that time, David was a Logistics Manager for a corporation in Spokane Valley and later played a role in creating a fully visual K-12 school curriculum with a team of content developers.  After years of talk about starting the Focus program, David became the first full-time Focus coach and trainer when the program began in 2011. David worked to develop and expand the scope and content of the Focus program over the next 6 years, as well as training 4 different coaches that would work alongside him over the years.  

David’s favorite aspect about life these days is being a parent to his daughter Meela.  In fact, due to his work in Focus and fathering experience, he’s currently writing a book on parenting.  David’s favorite thing about working as the Lead Focus Coach and Trainer is the mentorship aspect of the Focus Coach position.  After discovering his love for mentoring in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Inland Northwest program, David never looked back and continues to expand his mentoring skills to this day.  David enjoys pretty much every outdoor activity that exists and is always looking to try anything new. If you don’t find him on his bike pulling Meela around, you’ll probably find him on a pickleball court, or standing in a river holding a fly rod, or in the pool playing water polo, or in a sea kayak out on the lake, or maybe next to a campfire somewhere deep in the woods.  Wherever you might find him, it probably won’t be sitting still 🙂
