My apologies for the delayed response. Your professional experience is very strong and I think that will really set you apart. Academically, it looks like you had average undergrad scores and a good GMAT (despite a low verbal score?). In terms of extracurricular activities, you were an active leader in college and have maintained your hobbies since then. All in all, I'd say you have a strong profile and that your target school list has a good range of programs given your interests and background.

Good luck!
