MARY BETH MORGAN, VMD
After an injury ended a career path in ballet, Dr. Mary Beth Morgan decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. She first considered orthopedic medicine but realized human medicine was not to her liking. Animals became her passion. She attended the University of Pennsylvania College of Arts and Sciences and received a degree in Biology.
Dr. Mary Beth Morgan graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. Upon graduating, she persevered through a general medicine and surgery internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital, where she continued working as a staff doctor for the next 23 years.
Dr. Morgan has volunteered her time and veterinary expertise to numerous causes. She has spoken at countless career days from nursery schools to high schools, served as the on-site vet for dog walks including MCSPCA, L’Oreal Because Your Dog is Worth it and Sgt. Denny, and taught first-aid lectures for State Police K9 handlers. Dr. Morgan continues to volunteer for Save US Pets, which provides financial assistance to pets in need.
While working at RBVH, Dr. Morgan also worked at Fanwood Animal Hospital and Marlboro Animal Hospital. In addition, she worked at the Monmouth County SPCA doing surgery for their spay/neuter clinics and other surgeries such as enucleations and amputations for shelter animals.
Over the years, Dr. Morgan thought about owning her own practice. After 23 years at RBVH, she finally committed to making her dream a reality. In 2018, with the help of her husband and family, Dr. Morgan left RBVH to create TouchStone Veterinary Center. Together, they renovated parts of the old hospital themselves to create a brand new space that was calm, clean and welcoming.
Dr. Morgan has always had a love for big mushy dogs. She has owned mastiffs for over 25 years. She also has a soft spot for special needs cases and has taken in a bullmastiff with a heart defect, a bulldog with a cleft palate, and most recently a bulldog with a heart defect.
Dr. Morgan and her husband have 3 daughters and 2 sons. They share their home with a deaf bulldog, an English cream golden retriever, 4 mastiffs, an albino leopard gecko and a bearded dragon.
MONIKA MOSTOWY, DVM
Meet TouchStone's new vet!
Dr. Mostowy has always loved learning about and working with animals. After earning her college degree in biology, she worked at Monroe Animal Hospital as a receptionist and assistant. In 2014, she moved up to Ithaca, NY to attend Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. Upon graduation from vet school in 2018, Dr. Mostowy returned to her home state of New Jersey and continued her education by completing a rotating internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital from 2018-2019. In August of 2019, she joined us here at TouchStone.
Although cats are her absolute favorite furry friends, Dr. Mostowy enjoys seeing a variety of creatures including dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, rodents, reptiles, birds and small barnyard friends.
Outside of work, Dr. Mostowy enjoys spending time outdoors, eating ice cream, and snuggling with her three feline family members - Osky, Pip and Briar.
Erin has been in the veterinary field for over 10 years. She started working in animal shelters, and moved to Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in 2008. Through these experiences, Erin has developed a love for general practice and surgery.
Side by side, Dr. Morgan and Erin built TouchStone from the ground up. Her role evolved from technician to hospital manager as TouchStone’s family grew. In this new position, she deftly manages the day-to-day workings of the hospital while continuing the work she loves as a technician.
When she is not at work, Erin enjoys spending time with her family, especially the newest addition to her family - Human Baby Marshall, who is the biggest mush. Erin has three dogs of her own, Bella, Blaze and Sebastian, as well as one cat, Mama! Erin’s passion for animals and dedication to TouchStone make her one of a kind and so valuable to our practice.
Erin's photo is coming soon. For now, please enjoy this cute picture of Bella, Blaze and Sebastian!
