Jessica Stein, DVM
Dr. Jessica Stein is a bright addition to Staunton River Veterinary Clinic. A Botetourt native, Jessica attended Virginia Tech for undergraduate and majored in Animal Science. She then went on to attend veterinary school at Ross University, located in sunny St. Kitts (in the caribbean). Her studies concluded at North Carolina State University and she spent her first several years practicing veterinary medicine on a variety of species (large and small) in North Carolina.
Although Jessica has plenty of love for her larger four-legged friends, she has found her passion in small animal medicine. She enjoys the daily surprises, challenges, and satisfaction of private practice while helping families help their pets. Whether in the clinic or on house calls, Jessica will make sure your loved ones get the best care possible.
In her free time Jessica enjoys spending time in the great outdoors with her fiancee Jorge and two dogs – an island rescue, and Little Dog- a pug-chihuahua rescue from NC. You may even find her atop a horse every now and then. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to join our team and help serve her childhood community, friends, and family.
