Valerie St Fort Colin was born and raised in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. She moved to Miami, Florida in June 1997 where she completed her high school education in June 1998. She has resided in West Palm Beach, Florida since August 1998.

Her professional career began at the Palm Beach County School Board where she worked as a Community Language Facilitator for Haitian-Creole speakers, interpreting and advocating for students and parents in the Haitian community. She entered the social services field as a Program Specialist at Intercultural Family Health Education Center (IFHEC). At this time IFHEC was implementing a pilot program called “Giving Haitian Teens a New Direction”, a after school program focused on the Haitian youth at Lake Worth High School in Lake Worth, and Lake Shore Middle School in Belle Glade. A year later she was promoted to the position of Neighborhood Health Advisor/Outreach Coordinator for the “Involve Haitians in Closing the Gap”, a culturally competent health education program empowering the community members to improve their own health outcomes and facilitate their access to existing health and social services. Valerie is currently working at the Sickle Cell Foundation of Palm Beach County, Inc. as an Outreach Educator for the Women’s Health Initiative Program. The Women’s Health Initiative (WHIN) is a federally funded project awarded to the Children’s Services Council and administered through Sickle Cell Foundation of Palm Beach County, Inc., Palm Beach County Health Department and Families First. The purpose of the project is to eliminate racial disparities that negatively impact infant mortality rates for African Americans, Haitians, and non-Hispanic Caribbean black women of child bearing ages. She is also a Red Cross volunteer.

Valerie is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management at University of Phoenix.
