Marney Cullen, litigation paralegal, has been elected to the national Board of Directors for The RESCU Foundation, Inc.  The RESCU Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which promotes and helps maintain the physical and mental health and well-being of the artists, entertainers and service personnel who participate in the 300+ renaissance festivals and historical re-enactment events nationwide. RESCU provides vision and health screenings, wellness and first aid/safety workshops, and financial assistance for medical and dental care, prescriptions and short-term housing. RESCU also coordinates a network of medical, dental and mental health personnel to provide low-cost or pro bono services for festival participants, and follows all HIPAA guidelines for client privacy, acting quickly to provide needed care with compassion and understanding.

Joining HesseMartone in 2015, Marney has spent several decades as an artist and entertainer at renaissance faires and celtic festivals across the United States.  She has been a familiar face to visitors at The St. Louis Renaissance Festival since in 2008, where she has also spent time volunteering and providing coordination for RESCU’s fund-raising events.  As a member of RESCU’s national board, Marney’s primary responsibilities will be working with the Programs Committee to develop a cohesive program of well-woman and mother/baby services and to establish a network of screening programs and accessible resources for participants’ children coping with learning disabilities.  She will also be working with the Fundraising Committee providing oversight of fund-raising efforts nationwide.
