The GLSA office is headed by Tori Jo Wible, Executive Director of GLSA and Chief Counsel of the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Group and Prepaid Legal Services. Ms. Wible has been with the association since 2000. Prior to joining GLSA and the ABA, she worked in private practice in Minnesota, as well as for the Minnesota Supreme Court, and the Internal Revenue Service, with stops in banking and energy along the way. Ms. Wible is licensed in Minnesota and understands the generous contributions of time and talent the volunteers give to GLSA, because she is a volunteer herself, serving on the Board of Directors of WomenHeart from 2011 to 2014, as well as numerous local organizations.
