Virginia Optometric Association’s 2023 Vanguard of the Year (Young OD of the Year) 

The Virginia Optometric Association (VOA) proudly announced that Christine Paschal, OD, was named the VOA’s 2023 Vanguard of the Year (Young OD of the Year) during the 121st VOA Annual Conference in Hot Springs, Virginia, on Saturday, June 10, 2023.

After graduating from Virginia Tech, Dr. Paschal earned her doctorate from Southern College of Optometry. Dr. Paschal has been involved in leadership positions within optometry since she was a student. While at Southern College of Optometry, she served as Vice President for SVOSH. Dr. Paschal also volunteered with Lions Club International while in school and after graduation. She has enjoyed working with her Rotary International club on several different service projects as well.

Dr. Paschal became Secretary-Treasurer for the Richmond Optometric Society (ROS) soon after graduation. She then served as Vice President and is currently ROS President. Her main project as president is bringing back the ROS Summer Social this year, which will benefit Optometry Cares and will be held as a joint event, bringing together the Shenandoah Valley and Battlefield optometric societies.

Always looking to learn and improve, Dr. Paschal has participated in the Virginia Optometric Leadership Training program (VOLT) through the VOA, the SECO Young OD program, and the AOA Leadership Institute. She has helped the VOA with various young OD and women in optometry events since 2020, and joined the VOA Board of Trustees in 2022. As a trustee, she serves as co-chair of the Membership Committee and is a member of the Fall Conference Committee. This past year, she led monthly Zoom meetings to educate new VOA committee members about membership duties, promote local society membership drives, and share strategic ideas for success. She also represented the VOA during two virtual AOSA student-state affiliate connection meetings and in-person at SCO’s state affiliate day. Dr. Paschal also helped lead the VOA section of NECO’s virtual state affiliate meeting.
