Our Board Members

The ASRF’s Board of Directors are committed to better outcomes for the chiropractic community through the pursuit of our Vision
and delivering on our Mission. All Board members act in an honorary capacity providing service to the profession.

Dr Ryan Seaman is a Murdoch University graduate who now own’s his own family-based practice in Loxton South Australia. Having previously held many roles on various boards, Dr Seaman enjoys serving the profession by applying his skills and knowledge to further the Foundation’s impact. He believes Chiropractic to be the greatest profession in the world, and that good science is the best way to move the profession forward.

Dr Ryan is proud of the Foundation’s in-depth grant approval process and feels this process is adding some of the most clinically relevant and best quality science to the pool for our profession. He is looking forward to leading our Foundation’s capable team and creating more research, faster, for our profession. We as practitioners see many things in practice that the science has yet to define or explain, and therefor research is currency when in discussion with Board and Government. The greater depth and breadth of understanding of the Vertebral Subluxation, the better our profession will be.

Kora Drage is a Financial Adviser who runs her own practice in Perth, Western Australia. She has built a business on helping clients achieve financial independence, and over the years this focus has turned her interest towards health and wellbeing. Finding so many aging clients spending significant amounts of money on correcting their health problems, the conversation with younger clients shifted towards preventative health spending, rather than reactive in later years.

Having incorporated chiropractic care as part of her own personal health journey many years ago, Kora has joined the ASRF Board to support the funding of subluxation research, in the hope of providing the broader community with quantifiable data and information to improve their own lives.
