    And if you want to get official about it, Rachel Erin's Corporate Bio

    I've been called an Organized Creative. I have a solid background in account management and business operations; so I understand The Big Picture while being passionate about the value of a good creative strategy that is well executed. My work in the past 10 years as an independent creative and marketing consultant has given me a ton of experience with a wide spectrum of project types, clients and cultures. Because of this, I'm very adaptable and like challenges and new situations. I can fit into the team, lead the team or be the team. Clients are astonished at how productive I am.

    Why the name Stillwater?

    Oh man. I get asked this question a lot!
    The water thing could be because I’m an Aquarius or maybe because I grew up in Michigan…always adventuring about in a lake somewhere. Maybe it’s because Almost Famous is one of my favorite movies and that band is named Stillwater (also from Michigan).
    I also love, love, love the book Zen Shorts by John J. Muth, in which the protagonist is a particularly wise panda named Stillwater who is good at helping people think about
    old problems in new ways.
