Mrs. Paschall has had unique life experiences that have shaped her tenacious personality and contributed to her broad view of the world. As a young child, she spent several years in Panama, Central America, where her father worked for the United States government. Those years gave her an intense appreciation for different cultures. As an undergraduate in 1991, she did a semester abroad in St. Petersburg, Russia, where she was able to witness firsthand the opening of international borders and the ideological transition of a nation. Her most influential commitment was living in Central Africa from 1993-1997 as a Peace Corps Health Volunteer in Cameroon. Assimilating into a remote village and working on a Maternal-Child Survival Project in this developing third world country, enabled her to build strong Public Health, communication and language skills. Mrs. Paschall has an in-depth cross-cultural understanding rare among her peers. Most importantly, these adventures solidified her passion to help improve the lives of others.
Mrs. Paschall is a 1992 Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Arts in English. She attended Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing as a Peace Corps Fellow and National Health Service Corps Scholar and Scholarship recipient.

As a Nurse Practitioner, she worked for seven years as a Family Practice Provider in a rural Florida Community Health Center where she primarily treated migrant workers and the uninsured. While there, she precepted medical students and served as adjunct faculty for Nova South Eastern University. Mrs. Paschall also spent seven years in Private Practice with a well- respected Family Physician in Vero Beach, Florida.

In addition, her current position includes conducting provider chart audits, writing practice protocols and designing and facilitating NP Training.
George Bernard Shaw once said, "Progress is impossible without change". Mrs. Paschall decided it was time to branch out into a more stimulating direction. Although she plans to continue taking care of patients, she was in need of a new professional challenge. Consulting utilizes both her communication and research skills, as well as her extensive medical training and education. Establishing Paschall Medical Legal Consulting, has enabled her to continue to educate and empower her patients and colleagues.
