Dr. Hannah

Dr. Hannah Layden was born and raised in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. She received a soccer scholarship to Oklahoma, which is where she received her undergraduate education. She then went on to attend Life Chiropractic College West, in Hayward, California.

After a few years of family practice in California, Dr. Hannah, her husband Cameron, and son Quinn, moved to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, to join Dr. Amy at Spoelstra Family Chiropractic & FOCUS.

It was during chiropractic school that Dr. Hannah decided to begin an advanced post-doctorate training in pediatrics and pregnancy through the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association. She has completed over 200 hours in seminars, has contributed to practice-based research projects, and continues to work towards her certification.

Dr. Hannah always knew that she wanted to positively impact the lives of others. She is beyond grateful that being a chiropractor has given her the platform to do so through neuro-based chiropractic, education, and empowering her practice members to believe in their body’s own abilities to heal. She has found passion in her own journey as a woman and a mom and has focused her studies on creating a multi-pillar program to increase the health and quality of life of women. She believes that, rather than live in a world where we allow symptoms and diagnoses to run our lives, we can decide to be an active participant and take control of our health and life.

Dr. Hannah’s heart is happy to be living closer to Canada and getting to play in the snow 😉.  She enjoys playing soccer, being by the lake, going camping, hitting the slopes, traveling to new places, going to the park with her son, and learning…..always learning!

Dr. Clint

He was born and raised in Hagerman, Idaho. Dr. Clint first discovered his interest in Chiropractic after a sports injury in high school. After learning more about the benefits and value of chiropractic care, he knew this is how he wanted to spend his life serving others. During undergrad, he participated in a student-run organization to raise money for the local Children’s Hospital called Dance Marathon. Meeting and connecting with these kids made him realize he wanted to work with this specific population. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Boise State University, he moved to California to pursue his dream. Dr. Clint is a graduate of Life Chiropractic College West. During his time in California, he was a volunteer for the Special Olympics, which furthered his interest in working with kids of all abilities. This also led him to Dr. Amy and the FOCUS Academy, where he became certified. Dr. Clint loves taking care of patients of all ages, especially expecting mothers, pediatrics, and individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders. Dr. Clint can’t wait to serve the Coeur d’Alene community and is excited to meet you!
When Dr. Clint is not helping people in the office or meeting other professionals in the community, he can be found woodworking in his garage, playing pickleball, and golfing.

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, he probably won’t be sitting still 🙂

SARAH

Meet Sarah, our Patient Concierge!

Sarah is a Spokane/Coeur d’Alene native who graduated from Lake City High School last year. She is currently working on being accepted into nursing school at NIC, with the hope of becoming a certified nurse-midwife. Learning about how the human body is built and functions, has always fascinated Sarah, especially regarding how holistic and non-intrusive practices can be sued to resolve different issues that may arise, as an alternative to modern medicine.

Caring for and working with kids has also been a great passion of hers over the years, and she is so happy to have found a team that is not only wellness-focus but kid-centered as well! Through this opportunity, Sarah is hoping to learn and grow in her understanding of health and healing, along with being a source of positivity and encouragement for others.
