Danielle Pennock, Director of International Programs

As a child, Danielle used to spend hours flipping through her family’s encyclopedias, reading about other countries and trying to teach herself a few words in other languages, so it should be no surprise that she found herself working in international education. During her 19 years in the field, she’s welcomed international students at the EF International School in New York and managed study abroad programs at Marymount College and Suffolk University before coming to Emmanuel in 2012. She currently works part time and remotely from her home in central Massachusetts. Danielle is responsible for the strategic direction of the office as well as coordinating travel courses. Some of her favorite places she’s traveled to include England, Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey.

In her role with OIP, Jill advises students through the study abroad process from initial interest to return and advises international students on F-1 visas.
