Elaine, our Office Manager, has been with Dr. Khouri since 2005. With over thirty-five years of experience in the orthodontic field, she finds it fascinating to see the advances in orthodontic technology throughout the years. “I love my job! It is so satisfying to see the changes that orthodontics can make in a person’s life.” Elaine and her husband, Bill, have three grown children and six grandchildren. When at home, Elaine loves to paint, but you’ll usually find Elaine and Bill out on the golf course chasing that little white ball!
Chasity has been with Dr. Khouri since 2006. “I love getting to know our patients and seeing their confidence build as their treatment progresses.” Chasity is enthusiastic about cars and loves trading them in as often as she can. She’s a thrill seeker who went skydiving on her very first time in an airplane! Chasity and her husband, Greg, have three daughters who keep them very busy! Chasity enjoys Thursday “Family Movie Nights” and hitting it big at bingo.

You will be sure to spot her in the office, as she is the one who is always singing!
Paula, our Treatment Coordinator, has been part of our team since 2012 and has over fifteen years of orthodontic experience. She has a passion for the orthodontic field. “It’s amazing to see how our patients grow from Phase I to Phase II and become part of our family as a practice.” Paula is a true Southern girl who is a big LSU football fan.

Brittany has been a technician in our office since 2014.

Some of this country girl’s hobbies include hunting, four-wheeling and anything outdoorsy.
Kate, our Financial Coordinator, has been with Dr. Khouri since 2014. “I work hard to ascertain that you get the most from your insurance benefits.” She is so confident in Khouri Orthodontics that she is a patient herself (ask her about Invisalign!). Kate is an avid runner. She particularly likes running through the trails of the Battlefield. Her hobbies include spending time with her four children, playing outdoors, camping, hiking, and kayaking.
Cindy is part of our front office team. Before joining Khouri Orthodontics, Cindy was a teacher, three-sport coach, and stay-at-home mom. “I love seeing children happy, and I’m looking forward to seeing their big smiles as they get their braces off.” A Northern Virginia native, Cindy lives in Bristow with her husband and two children (and two big dogs). She enjoys spending time with her family, reading, walking, and directing three handbell choirs at her church.
