Magnolia is a full time artist and entertainer, performing with “the hubs” as “Judas and Magnolia” across the country and around the world. This husband and wife team of variety artists perform escape artist stunts, magic and illusion, circus and fire arts, and Medieval and Renaissance music at fairs, festivals, corporate and private events, and street corners roughly 45 weeks of the year!
Magnolia joined the RESCU Board in 2019 after years of volunteering with Programs Committee and is currently the Chairperson for the Programs Committee, the Mental Health Subcommittee, and the Grants and Corporate Sponsorships Subcommittee. They love being a part of RESCU because to them it is the personification of the transformation of tragedy into triumph which they try to embody in their personal life.
Magnolia’s prior experience that they bring to RESCU includes organizing work with an urban garden and grassroots soup kitchen, a collectively run women and children’s shelter, an urban farm, a zine collective, a volunteer run bike repair shop, and occupying the chairperson position for a local Sierra Club affiliate. In addition, they have experience and training in consensus, non violent communication, and anti racism. Magnolia and the hubs each have over 5 years of sobriety and hope to inspire others to live their very best lives every day, knowing that the only certainty in life is death.
