My name is Hamelmal (Hamie) Tekie, and I am the Student Services/VR Services Coordinator at the Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) San Diego District Office located in Mission Valley. I began my career at DOR in June 2018 as an OT (G). I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Social Work. I believe that change occurs when people are given the tools they need to draw on their own strengths and realize their potential to live life with happiness and fulfillment. My goal is to be as helpful and resourceful to our students as possible with the assistance of Mallory Sibley (QRP) and our supervisor, Esther Bazalaki.
