Jessica was born in Latrobe, PA, but she has called Kitty Hawk her home for the last thirty years. Dr. Stumph graduated from Manteo High School before attending Averett University where she double majored in biology and equine studies, graduating with honors. She then attended North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine, where she again graduated with honors. Since graduating in 2008, Dr. Stumph has practiced locally seeing patients of all shapes and sizes. Her passion for animals has never waned.

She spends her spare time looking after her own batch of critters including two horses, Mario and Raphael, two cats, Figgy and Snowball, and her two dogs, Mayzzy and Re-Pete. She loves spending time with her husband David, collecting sea glass, rooting for her Pittsburgh Steelers and riding her tractor.
