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.
