Samantha Costa

My name is Samantha, but most call me Sam. I'm a health and wellness reporter for the consumer advice team at U.S. News & World Report.

I have three years experience in clinical news reporting and editing, in addition to two years of feature writing and daily newspaper reporting. Prior to my career in journalism, I was a certified pharmacy technician for CVS Caremark.

My professional writing career includes countless bylines for:
