Dr. Carolle was born in Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti.
Because of her family’s economic situation while growing
up, she occasionally had to go to bed hungry. She grew up in
a country with very few resources and an extremely oppressive
and dangerous political climate. Schools closed at the first
sign of political unrest; books were banned and rare to find.
Dr. Carolle knows first hand the impact of the very problems
that she now works diligently to solve.
also lived in a caste society wherein women were considered
second-class citizens without the opportunities and rights that
men automatically enjoyed. In spite of these challenges, she
was given tremendous support from her relatives and was brought
up to believe that she could do and be anything she desired.
Because of them, she decided that she was going to be intelligent
and go as far as any man could ever go. She was going to be
different! She was going to be a champion of hope! She was not
going to allow the circumstances that she had been born under
slow her down in any way, shape, or form.
Several important events compelled her over the years to become
a doctor. When she was 9 years old, she became very ill and
was brought back to health by the caring of her paternal grandfather,
a well-known indigenous healer. At age 16 her desire to be a
doctor and serve the poor was cemented when she acted as an
assistant to Joseph, a nurse who was running a clinic in Source
Chaude, a poor rural town. Her path in life was clear, she was
born to help others.
dream while growing up was to build a hospital, just as Albert
Schweitzer had done, to provide medical care for the poor. In
pursuit of this dream, she became an obstetrician-gynecologist
and was fortunate enough to work among diverse populations and
conditions in New York, Mexico, Jamaica, and Milwaukee.
In 1999, she joined Dr. Charles Rene, an Haitian-born obstetrician and gynecologist who is her role model. Dr. Rene has been going to La Vallee de Jacmel in the south-eastern region of Haiti since 1986 three times a year with
a team of educators and health-care providers to provide free
medical care and educational programs.
