Mrs. Karrie Helt


I was born and raised in Steubenville, Ohio (home of Dean Martin).  I married my high school sweetheart, Jason, and moved to Jacksonville in 2001.  Military orders brought us to the East Coast, but the community is what has kept us here.  He retired from the Marine Corps after 21.5 years and now works for NAVAIR in Cherry Point. We have two fantastic children.  Mady is 17 and will be a senior at Onslow Early College High School.  Mikey is 10 and will be in 6th grade at Swansboro Middle.   Between volunteering, soccer, Girl Scouts, those two keep us busy.
