Samantha Sepulveda was born in the Dominican Republic, moving to the United States when she was five. Sepulveda, her mother, and older sister, moved to the United States when she was five. In 2003, during her senior year of high school, she earned a sports scholarship to attend the University of Massachusetts and New York state's Schloss Award for girl's lacrosse.
In mid-2013 a friend invited her to model in a runway fashion show for their lingerie company. Sepulveda accepted, and began modeling lingerie and swimwear in her time off.
In 2013 Sepulveda appeared in a video intended to introduce, and secure funding, for a reality TV show called America's Next Great Trainer. In 2014 Muscle and Fitness magazine chose Sepulveda as one of the women in a photo profile entitled "America's hot girls of the gym". The magazine Inside Fitness profiled her in October 2015. By February 2017, Sepulveda had 110,000 followers on Instagram.
On January 22, 2017, the New York Post published an article identifying her as being a full-time model. Sepulveda later said that she had been working as a model for three years, and that her police colleagues were aware of, and supportive of her modeling. Amid the media generated by the article, Sepulveda has had multiple interviews, but has refused to name her police department to avoid any negative association that might be made between her two careers. The publicity led her Instagram followers to double, an interview on the Fox News New York affiliate, and a pictorial feature in Maxim.
