Ellery Palanuk, BSN, RN, CN-BN, is a member of the Compass Breast Specialists team as a nurse with a passion for navigating patients through complicated healthcare systems. She investigates any barriers to care that a patient may encounter, to provide access to timely and quality care. She works very closely with a patient’s multidisciplinary care team to create a smooth transition between specialties. Ellery knows that breast cancer is not a one-size-fits-all diagnosis and that patients and their families deserve personalized cancer care. She strives to provide information to patients about their diagnosis that will help relieve uncertainty and anxiety, to achieve the best possible health outcome, so they can go on living the lives that they love. In her spare time, Ellery loves spending time with her family, staying active, especially outdoors – running, snowboarding, paddle boarding and hiking. She also enjoys cooking and crafting.
