Bio

Cholet Kelly Josué is a Bahamian-born Haitian American author and physician seeking a home among the three cultures that have played a role in his life. Born in the Bahamas of Haitian parents who wanted their children to experience their ancestral roots, Cholet moved to Haiti with his siblings when he was four years old. There he spent the next twelve years of his life reveling in a simple and decent, if checkered, childhood until he was sent across the Caribbean Sea in a wooden boat to join his mother in South Florida after the death of his father.

While still an undocumented immigrant, Cholet earned a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from Florida Atlantic University. Then he spent the next six months at the University of Miami law library preparing to represent himself in the trial of his life: the quest to become a legal resident.

Cholet received his medical degree from Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta and did his residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He practices medicine in Maryland with a functional and integrative approach and draws on his special interest in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry.
