In 1993, Dr. Carolle founded Health Through Communications Foundation (HTCF), a nonprofit organization, and its prodigy the Angels For Haiti Projects in 1999.
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.
She 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.
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.
Dr. Carolle is a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist, and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
