2006 – 2011 Graduate: Nurse Practitioner – Angelo State University (San Angelo, TX)
2012 – 2015 Fellowship: Carilion Clinic Emergency Department – (Roanoke, VA) 2016 – 2017


Hayle was born in Ethiopia before coming to the United States and grew up in Austin, Texas. After graduating from nursing school, Hayle worked in both the intensive care unit and emergency department of local hospitals in Austin and West Texas. This is where Hayle found his interest pursuing his Nurse Practitioners degree. Hayle went on to further his training by accepting an emergency medicine fellowship affiliated with Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Research Institute. Here he was exposed to a variety of devastating complications associated with preventable chronic conditions. This combination of experience and exposure motivated Hayle to take an approach to healthcare that is focused on prevention and helping patients simply make healthier lifestyle choices.


Hayle is a fitness buff and has always enjoyed the outdoors and outdoor related sporting activities. He also enjoys weightlifting, outside activities with his dog Carmela and has a passion for trying new ethnic cuisine. He was involved in basketball in high school and translated his athletic passion by always keeping himself involved with intramural sports in college. He most enjoys the outdoor aspect of sporting events and has now found interest in completing half marathons every few years. His most recent outdoor sport he is exploring is the art of the golf game. Although he is very much a beginner, Hayle has found interest in a challenging sport that keeps you outside and humbles even the best athletes. He has channeled his love for sports, and wellness to help engage and challenge those who want to see change.

Hayle understands that everyone’s personal goals of health and wellness are unique and wants to embody this difference because we all have personal stories that drive us. Given his added interest in preventative medicine, Hayle began taking several curriculum-based courses at The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) and routinely attends workshops to keep abreast of new innovative approaches to individualize and redefine modern medicine.
