Charmaine L. Howell (born 13 March 1975 in Trelawny Parish) is a retired Jamaican athlete who specialized in the 800 metres.


She competed at the 2000 Olympics, being knocked out in the semi final. She also ran for the Jamaican 4 x 400 metres relay team in the heats and could therefore receive an Olympic silver medal after Lorraine Graham, Deon Hemmings, Sandie Richards and Catherine Scott-Pomales finished second in the final.

Her personal best time over 800 metres was 1:59.61 minutes, achieved in June 2001 in Portland.

Since retiring, Charmaine has become a Financial Counselor and Zumba Instructor.
