Kerry grew up in Sterling, VA and later moved to Kitty Hawk, NC where she graduated from Manteo High School in 1996. She later received her associate degree from The College of The Albemarle before serving in the US Navy. The Outer Banks remained Kerry’s “home” and she kept strong ties to the area throughout her life. Kerry was fondly called “Kiwi” and “Hooksta” by her family will be remembered for her contagious laugh (that SNORT was one of a kind!), her love for animals, her amazing blue eyes, and always having her nose in a good novel.
