Keynote Speaker and Service Providers
Rev. Kelli Clement (Opening Ceremony and Keynote Speaker)
Rev. Kelli Clement joined the St. Croix Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (SCUUF) as minister in the spring of 2018. Rev. Clement, who is also an assistant minister of the First Unitarian Society in Minneapolis, is highly regarded for her tireless work throughout the state and country for justice and compassion. She preaches at SCUUF on the first Sunday of each month and provides other ministerial services.
“I fell in love with the St. Croix community and with the amazing people that make up the SCUUF fellowship,” says Rev. Clement. “I continue to be excited to form strong bonds and to create shared ministry with this exceptional, growing congregation that loves to laugh together.”
Unitarian Universalism affirms and promotes principles grounded in the humanistic teachings of the world’s religions. UU spirituality is unbounded, drawing from scripture and science, nature and philosophy, personal experience and ancient tradition.
“We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, and we are inclusive of all sexual orientations and gender identities — all aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good,” said Rev. Clement. “UUs have an uncompromising track record of siding with love, justice, and peace. At the same time, we are committed to examining our own part in upholding systems of oppression, and we work actively to dismantle such systems.”
Rev. Clement received her Master of Divinity at United Theological Seminary and did undergraduate studies at the University of Texas and University of Wisconsin. She was a training and curriculum consultant for the national Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice and served as executive director at the Minnesota Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. Rev. Clement is also a certified facilitator for Prepare Enrich Marriage Preparation Inventory, and Intercultural Developmental Inventory.

Ann Agrimson has been a Massage therapist since 2004 and an Energy practitioner since 2012. Ann’s approach is nurturing and intuitive. Massages may be relaxing - reducing stress and improving circulation, or rehabilitative – deep, specific work to an area to reduce pain and muscle tightness. Many times it’s a combination of both! No massage or energy session is the same because each session is tailored to the client. Energy work assesses a client’s chakras and energy fields. It involves not just the body, but the mind and spirit also. A client is fully clothed and can lie on a table or sit in a chair. The practitioner has their hands on or above the client’s body. Clients find the process relaxing, rejuvenating and supportive. Ann has worked with a variety of issues including: fibromyalgia, headaches, Parkinson’s, arthritis, cancer, joint replacement, and hospice. She enjoys working with women and promoting self-care.
Trish Kloeckl, OTR, has been practicing Shiatsu since 2000, mainly at The Center for Victims of Torture and at CenterPoint Therapeutic Massage and Shiatsu School and Clinic. Trish is a also Certified Hand Therapist and Occupational Therapist, specializing in rehabilitation of the upper extremity. Trish has been part of the massage team for many previous women’s retreats. She loves working in a retreat-style setting and encourages women to keep balance in their lives and care for themselves with a shiatsu session! For her sessions please wear light-weight comfortable clothing.
