Michele Puchino - Vice President I have lived in Bensalem and have been married over twenty years and have a beautiful daughter. I was a travel agent for Liberty travel for twenty four years and am now retired from the travel business. I work with my husband in our family restaurant business.

Gail Yamin Co-Secretary My entire life I have lived in the Bucks County area and have been married for almost 30 years and have two amazing daughters. As a Registered Nurse for over 20 years, I began my career as an ICU Nurse at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden NJ. After a year in the Cardiac Cath Lab I then moved to the Operating Room at Nazareth Hospital in Philadelphia. As a circulating nurse, I was involved with the implementation of a new computer system used for documentation which led to being recruited to the informatics department at the corporate office. I am now working as a Clinical Data Systems Analyst at Trinity Health. My main focus is implementing and providing support for Meditech computerized documentation in the operating room. I was lucky to meet one of the White Dove team members during an implementation at St Mary Medical Center in Langhorne. I have been interested in getting involved in charity work for some time and was so excited to join this amazing group of women who give so much time and effort to helping support those in need in the Bucks County Area.
