I am sure you know that your profile is strong. You have impressive professional and academic experience. Your challenge will be to convince an admissions committee that you will benefit from a 2nd MBA. Not all MBA programs will consider applicants who already have an MBA. You will need to present a very specific and convincing argument that another MBA can provide you with knowledge that your previous work experience and MBA have not.

Your work experience, academic record, and extracurriculars looks great. I would recommend that you focus on studying for the GMAT so you can achieve a competitive score. Additionally, look for opportunities to visit your target schools and begin to network with students/alumni/admissions staff if possible. Many schools take their recruiting activities on the road so there may be an opportunity for you to attend school functions with minimal travel.
