When you know you are of worth — not asking it but knowing it — you walk into a room with a particular power.

Arnettia S. Wyre is an attorney, business consultant, and advisor with over 20 years of experience helping clients solve their problems. In this capacity, I have thoroughly enjoyed enlightening, inspiring, and empowering others to make life altering decisions.

 

As a change agent, I am a voice for the voiceless.  I wholeheartedly believe that to whom much is given, much is required. To that end, I am committed to public service. Currently, I serve on the board of the Howard County Foundation for Black Educational & Cultural Achievement, Inc, a grass roots organization that provides college scholarships to African-American high school seniors in Howard County, Maryland.  In addition, I have been actively involved with the American Bar Association, working on diversity issues for the Real Property Trusts and Estates Section, Commission on Disability Rights, as well as the Standing Committee to the Law Library of Congress.

As a native Washingtonian, I am proud to hail from the Southeast quadrant of the city.  As such, I am committed to strengthening the Black family.  My personal mission is to inspire and empower the African-American community to think big, dream big, and do big things. To that end, I recently authored my first book entitled I Am Royalty - Pearls of Wisdom for the King or Queen Within which will be released soon.  I am also the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of OmniQuest Youth Empowerment Initiative, Inc., a capacity building non-profit created to serve the academic, social, and emotional needs of African-American youth in under-resourced communities.

I received a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of the District of Columbia. I attended the University of Baltimore, where I earned a Juris Doctor (law degree) with a specific focus in advocacy. At American University, I received a Master of Business Administration with a concentration in real estate development.
