Gabriel E. Wilson joins Board of Directors at the Center for Hearing & Speech
Gabriel E. Wilson has joined the board of directors for the Center for Hearing & Speech.
“We are thrilled to have Gabe lend his expertise to benefit the Center. He not only brings a unique set of professional skills, but he has a personal passionate connection to our mission,” said Rita Tintera, Executive Director.
Wilson’s personal passionate connection to the Center is very much a part of who he is. His youngest brother Seth is unable to speak. “I’ve struggled with hearing my whole life and just recently got hearing aids,” he said.
Since 2004, Wilson has worked at Edward Jones. He began his career reengaging with inactive clients, and spent two years as a business development officer in the Edward Jones Trust Company. In this role, he helped financial advisors and their clients understand the Trust Company and how it could benefit them in estate/legacy planning.
During his 10-year career he has managed multi-million dollar client accounts and currently serves as Senior Case Manager in the Client Consultation Group.
A native of Jefferson City, Wilson attended Southeast Missouri State University from 1997 to 1998. During this time he earned the John Wiseman Academic Scholarship Award, played Division I-AA football, was a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity and was a member of the National Dean’s List.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 2002 from the University of Missouri- Columbia.
Wilson’s wife, Michelle, is an occupational therapist in a skilled nursing facility. “I’m incredibly proud of the work she does and the difference she makes,” he says.
The couple has a two-year-old daughter, Emma, and is expecting their second child, a boy, on Christmas Eve.
Wilson enjoys spending time with Emma and walking Molly, his yellow Lab. “Before those two arrived I used to play golf,” he quipped.
