Biography

Samantha von Sperling is a lifestyle guru who has spent her entire career going above and beyond to help her clients achieve their goals.

“When asked what I do, I will tell you that I “spit shine” people and things for a living.  My arsenal of expertise helps smooth out the rough spots, whether it’s your look, the space you inhabit, or how you interact with the world around you.  Our goal is to help you feel more comfortable in your skin and confident in your ability to handle any social situation with panache!  Keen insight and fresh perspective is the first step to attaining your goal.  Everything in life at some level is a matter of packaging and a game of seduction, a new job, a step up the ladder, the winning over of clients and friends or the conquest of your desire.  Tell me what you want, what you need, even if it seems trivial, personal or impossible.  If I can’t help you, I’ll tell you.  If I can, it shall be done.”

Samantha was raised in a sophisticated family where entertaining international guests was de rigueur; refined manners, elegant dress, proper posture, the art of conversation, and ballroom dancing are second nature to her. Her education is a continuation of a lifelong passion for the arts and a foundation for her business.  Armed with a Bachelor of Science degree from New York University School of Education and Performing Arts Professions with a concentration in speech communications ― also a classically trained ballroom dancer and actress ― von Sperling set out to offer the world a new approach to the old concept of finishing.  She uses her diverse talents through innovative group seminars or with one-on-one consultations.  By utilizing all her skills and training, Von Sperling has fulfilled requests from royal families, diplomats, politicians, celebrities, CEOs, companies big and small, regular joes, and soccer moms.  She has appeared in print publications such as The New York Times, TIME Magazine, O The Oprah Magazine, Bloomberg Businessweek, and The Wall Street Journal, to name a few.  She appears as a guest expert on numerous television programs,  and currently writes her own column Ask Samantha for Time Square Chronicles.
