With her father’s legacy, MarieYolaine Toms resigned from American Express, after the January 2010 Haïti earthquake, to create Community2Community (C2C), a 501c3 non-profit, service organization. The Vision: creating self-sufficient communities by working with the community. The Goal: replicate the pilot project, offering Diaspora and those with a heart for Haïti an opportunity to be part of something greater than themselves working with partners, such as FAHM, ADIHA, HAC-Haïti, HWC, and MADRE. A sought-after facilitator and a motivational speaker selected to kick-off the 2011 Princeton and Wall Street TEDx events, she is also a 2013 fellow of the New York City Leadership and 2016 Promise Driven Leader of the Masters Series of Distinguished Leaders programs. MarieYoliane credits her joie de vivre to Luke 1:37, her family, the people of Petit Goâve, and the C2C Team.
