USAA is a member-owned financial services group with millions of members worldwide. The company produced three quarterly magazines geared toward young members. Rachel Bell helped develop content as an independent contractor for all three magazines. She edited and proofread copy and layouts, and interviewed contacts for radio podcast material and key quotes. And, when USAA’s public relations agency of record needed help on-site, USAA recommended her for the project.
