Our Team

Dr. Amy Spoelstra

Dr. Amy and her husband David live in Coeur d’Alene with their beautiful daughter Meela and chocolate lab Izzy.  They opened Spoelstra Family Chiropractic in April of 2008 after moving from South Carolina where Dr. Amy graduated cum laude from Sherman College of Chiropractic.

Amy and her family love to travel and experience new cultures! Her favorite things are exploring new places with her family, learning about different cultures and people, yoga, a good cup of coffee and to study….seriously….she loves to study!

Amy has extensive post-doctoral training in pediatric chiropractic and has contributed to the Practice-Based Research Network with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. She is currently working with New Zealand College of Chiropractic to publish case studies from within her practice on pediatric chiropractic and is a member of the Australian Spinal Research Foundation and the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association.

Dr. Amy is also the founder of the FOCUS program and Neuro-Deflective Retraining Method. She opened the FOCUS program within her practice in 2011 and has been helping children and adults with neurodevelopmental disorders in the northwest area ever since. Dr. Amy is also the founder of FOCUS Educational Services, where she trains and consults other doctors around the country in the FOCUS model. Dr. Amy is the co-founder of Navigate Your Healing, LLC, which is an online platform designed to help parents and families who are affected by ASD and other neurodevelopmental disorders navigate the overwhelming and often isolating world of healing and living life with children with developmental challenges. She feels an enormous amount of gratitude to be able to live this life of purpose and love with her family.

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!

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 🙂

Shelly

Shelly is like our office “mom”. In addition to being a magnet for all the kids in the practice (seriously, all kids love Ms. Shelly), she also keeps the doctors and staff on time and organized!  Shelly is the newest team member here at Spoelstra Family Chiropractic. She joined our team in May of 2018 and quickly realized that working with families and kids in their journey to better health and function was something in which she found great purpose!

Shelly has lived and traveled all over this beautiful country but has put her stakes down in North Idaho. You can often find her enjoying the outdoors and spending time with her dog, Jasmine. Shelly has a lifetime of professional experience in all different realms that have allowed her to help in the continuous improvement of our procedures and organization at SFC and FOCUS. Shelly knew at a young age that she wanted to work with children in some capacity and has been searching for this opportunity for years. From the second she walked through the doors for her interview and got a high five from one of our FOCUS kids, she knew this was the place for her! Shelly is our Office Manager and helps keep the office moving and organized with her upbeat personality.
