Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade

After a period as a commercial lawyer in Beijing and Hong Kong, Helen now works for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Tel Aviv. Working on Middle Eastern regional security and multilateral issues, Helen says the international focus of the ANU College of Law provided a solid foundation for a career in foreign affairs and has been extremely helpful in allowing her to grasp the ‘diverse tapestry of Israeli society and why the situation here is so complex – socially, politically and religiously’.

  • Former Foreign Legal Associate at King & Wood Mallesons (Beijing) and former AustCham Greater China Coordinator.
  • Former Economics Intern at the Embassy of Beijing, General and Political News Intern at Thomson Reuters (Beijing) and Intern at the UNDP.
  • Recipient of the 2012 ADC Australian Leadership Award, 2011 ACC-AustCham Young Leaders Scholarship and the 2008 Cheung Kung Achievement Scholarship.
