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 🙂
Macaela is an up and coming young professional, who has moved all across the country but has roots in the Coeur d’Alene community.

She has always been passionate about working with children and people of all ages with developmental disabilities. She has volunteered with Special Olympics and also started the first Special Needs Employment program at a local health store.

Jill was born and raised in North Idaho and loves to spend her time with friends and family appreciating all that the beautiful Coeur d’Alene area has to offer. If Jill could go visit anywhere, it would be Disney World, even though she has already been multiple times.
Jill has worked with children professionally for over 8 years and has a keen interest in brain development. Although Jill has a passion for caring for babies, she thoroughly enjoys continuing to pursue higher education and training in the world of neuro-developmental challenges. Working for Dr. Amy Spoelstra was a natural next step after being a “behind the scenes” part of the team for years. She currently holds the title of Administrative Chiropractic Assistant while assisting with Dr. Amy’s various FOCUS programs and trainings.
Amberly enjoys spending all her free time in the outdoors, specifically hiking and fly-fishing with her daughter.Amberly is excited to join the Spoelstra Family Chiropractic & FOCUS team and is looking forward to helping create a safe and comfortable space for our practice members and their families.
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.
