She prioritizes relationship building and continued learning, and her leadership style is supportive, positive, and energetic. She’s had the opportunity to precept many graduate nursing students in a navigation clinical and write and present nationally on topics in navigation, education, and process improvements. Eleanor earned her MSN and BSN from Thomas Jefferson University, and a BS in Biology from Penn State University. Her navigation team proudly received the ONS 2018 Team Achievement Award and 2019 Oncology Navigation Summit Honorable Mention for Outstanding Oncology Navigation Program.
