Born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Stamile describes herself as a "histrionic" child, due to the fact that she was the middle of five children. She performed in her first play at age four and started a theatre program at her high school.

She landed a role within months of her first audition in the off-Broadway production The Miser, and later understudied on Broadway for Lion in Winter.
She has also appeared in the independent films Chaos Theory and the drama Something Sweet, the latter screening at the American Film Institute's annual festival.
On television, she has guest-starred in numerous shows including The Drew Carey Show, Strong Medicine, Married to the Kellys, Cold Case, Summerland, Committed, Crossing Jordan, Numb3rs, Heroes, Scrubs, Drop Dead Diva and The Secret Circle.
