About Us

Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”’? If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside— what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’? 

  • John 10:34-36


We're spiritually inclined communications and policy professionals who use our intuitive discernment along with hard skills and data to create brand experiences that resonate at the soul level and protect the public interest.


We leverage the power of lifestyle evangelism (leading by example), authenticity, and a national security mindset to transmute the energy of the human collective from the lead of carnal competition into the gold of peace and collaboration.


We use a love of language, law, God, and war to wage peace, prosperity, and enlightenment on a global scale. We promote humanitarianism, interfaith coexistence, as well as giving governance back to God and higher ideals.

Who We Are

This operation began with a freelance writer who studied web design and digital film making, fighting to create a life for herself and build a meaningful career. She began with copywriting and web design, which yielded lackluster results due to oversaturation of talent in the market. The founder went back to university to further her education and find a strategic niche that would put her consultancy on the path of world change.



Her life put her on a path to understand politics, government, international relations, and law. Combining her skills and expertise, our founder found herself mastering government marketing and communications. But she wanted more.


The Cultured Scholar attended a United Nations SDG 16 reception in 2019 and became inspired to pair brand messaging strategies with sustainability, encouraging all sectors to take actionable steps toward achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Success with this new endeavor catalyzed a critical pivoting moment.

The COVID-19  pandemic hit, election interference increased, our founder’s mother died causing the founder to face the prospect of homelessness, President Joe Biden pulled out of Afghanistan creating a geopolitical crisis, and our founder took a risk to help analyze disinformation campaigns while working with her client in the space industry. The conflagration of events gave our founder pause, as she realized that her dreams were coming true and she finally found the market niche that would put her on the path to success and service.

The Cultured Scholar Strategic Communications, LLC transformed from a digital marketing and communications consultancy into a strategic intelligence analysis and narrative design consultancy with a focus on public affairs.  The unique advantage The Cultured Scholar provides is basing all analysis on the basics of theology and spirituality, metaphysics, and human nature – what makes people tick and how they view themselves in the world and the cosmos.

Our strategies have created positive catalysts for change, shifted worldviews, and saved lives!
