While the leadership aspect of your profile is strong, your challenge will be to prove you have sufficient applicable work experience to contribute to an MBA class and have a context in which to understand the business principles you will learn. You should also be able to clearly articulate both your short and long-term goals and how your previous experience will play a role in helping you reach those goals. Increasing your GMAT score by 40-50 points will also strengthen your application especially given your target schools.

Finally, I have never seen Wharton listed as a "safety school" as most people consider it a "stretch" or dream school. At any rate, you will definitely need to increase your GMAT score and create an extremely strong application to compete with other Wharton applicants.
