Ira Richard Morgenstern, MD
Ira was raised in Rahway, New Jersey. He went to Rutgers University and Tufts Medical School. He did his psychiatric residency at New York Medical College, Metropolitan Hospital.
Over the course of his professional career Ira did many things, including a private, psychotherapy oriented private practice which slowly segued into a psychopharmacology practice, as the medications got better. Also, he was a consultant, at various times in his career, to nursing homes, schools, prisons and other such institutions in his area.
He was, for a number of years, the Medical Director of one of New Jersey’s State Psychiatric Hospitals where geropsychiatric patients were treated. Ira was an early computer enthusiast and bought a TRS80 in 1978. He deeply regrets throwing it away some years later. On it, he taught himself Basic. He still remembers that CLS= Clear the Screen.
Around 1995 Ira decided that writing the same phrases over and over was not how he wanted to spend his professional time, and that a computer could do it. Fortuitously, the salesperson at MacMall suggested he buy and teach himself FileMaker. Ira decided that if he could just push a button that put into his note, “Patient convincingly denies suicidal ideation or intent” he would be happy. ICANotes flowed from that desire. He considers the years spent using his own program during the day and adding new features or fixing bugs in the evening the best part of his career. However, an inexpertly written program and a business are two widely different things. ICANotes was a hobby until his brother Don Morgenstern and his daughter's friend Dave Fencik responded to Ira’s pleas for help. Without Don’s business savvy and Dave’s technical savvy it would still be a hobby. Without Mark Conrad the program would still look silly and run slowly. Without Courtney the company would grind to a halt.
Founding Partner, President
Don was raised in Rahway, New Jersey in a house with a small family business (a Medical Laboratory) attached. He started his first business (a Marina Snack Bar) at 16. Don went to Ohio State University and got an MBA at Long Island University. He then started his second business; The Library Sign Company, which provided signs to libraries across the United States.
Don joined ICANotes when it seemed to have as many bugs as buttons, and his valiant service as business manager, flak catcher, and unpaid employee was instrumental in getting the company going.
It was Don's insight that ICANotes is a customer service company first and software second. Also, he has an unrivaled talent for finding talented people and for insisting on unending improvement in programming, technology, reliability and, of course, customer service.
Don is married, has two grown children, is a Master Gardener and has an extremely small carbon footprint due to his interest in geothermal, solar voltaic, and other renewable energy technologies and products. He lives in Annapolis, Maryland.
Partner, Chief Architect
Dave grew up in Moonachie, NJ (a real place). He is an identical twin and a born computer expert. He began taking things apart as soon as he could walk and wrote his first computer program on a Commodore 64 when he was 8. He was voted "most intellectual" of his high school class. He was a Computer Science major at Rutgers and seems to know everything there is to know about computers, the Internet, and hacking....er, computer security.
Dave began providing advice to ICANotes while he was still in college and joined the company soon after graduating. He oversaw every technical aspect of the early company, including the all important migration from a simple, stand-alone program to an internet program based in a data center in a server farm. Dave is happiest solving technical problems, monitoring and integrating cutting edge technologies into ICANotes.
Dave enjoys the outdoors. His favorite activities are running, cycling, snowboarding, and snorkeling. He is proud to ride his bicycle into town every day to drink coffee at the local coffee shop and visit the local market.
Dave found the girl of his dreams and married her. They currently live in Maywood, NJ.
Partner, Chief Developer
Mark grew up near Washington, D.C. He went to Vassar College, then completed a Masters degree in Psychobiology from the Univ. of Michigan where he studied visual perception. Not wanting to spend his life in a research lab with monkeys, he trained in Chinese Medicine in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and practiced acupuncture for five years.
Mark started to teach himself programming in 1986 after he saw a six year old make a drawing using the mouse on a Macintosh. He has worked as a consultant designing FileMaker database systems at the Dept. of Energy, Qwest Telecom, GE, and most recently a five year stint at Eli Lilly prior to joining ICANotes.
Mark never seems to settle down - he just loves to be stimulated by new challenges. He also loves to listen to music, ride his mountain bike, teach Yoga, and take long walks with his wife.
Partner, Chief Customer Officer
Courtney was born in Kentucky but was an "army brat" and grew up on army bases from California to Panama.
ICANotes Partner Don Morgenstern had coffee every morning at the City Dock Coffee Shop where Courtney was the manager and he noticed how efficient she was and how easily she got along with customers and co-workers. He offered her a job in 2008 and was impressed that she expressed a loyalty to the Coffee Shop. Nevertheless, she accepted a part time job and quickly impressed Don, and everybody else, with the speed at which she learned, her willingness to ask questions, her perfect record keeping, and her facility with customers with support questions. After giving the Coffee Shop ample notice she joined ICANotes full time and soon became an equity partner.
Courtney is a vocalist in her church's worship band, a voluntary teacher of English to the local Hispanic community, and recently adopted a cat named Oliver that she taught to "sit." She lives in Annapolis with her husband Ryan. They recently bought their first house.

Miriam grew up all over the US, but spent a majority of her adult life in Wichita, KS. Miriam and her husband of 20 years recently moved their four kids to South Florida - which has been a huge, fun change for them. Living 20 min away from the beach was a forgotten dream that they have been able to realize. Besides the kids (ages 14, 11, 9, and 6 - boys and girls), they moved 3 dogs, a hamster, and a parakeet (who happens to play fetch). Miriam’s favorite superheroes include Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel. She loves reading, in particular classic British literature. But she ultimately ends up spending most of her time watching her kids play sports.
Miriam obtained a degree in Computer Science in 2001 at Wichita State University. She has been in the tech industry ever since in various roles (including QA, Development, and project lead type roles). Miriam loves learning new things - which is probably why she has stayed in tech so long. It is definitely an ever-changing field.

Brian studied photographic quality control at the Rochester Institute of Technology and has worked in some form of customer service his entire career. He has experience working for a portable x-ray company, Wal-Mart, and Wells Fargo prior to his employment with Haven Center.

Jennifer graduated from Penn State University with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science. She also holds an associate's degree in Math Education from a community college and recently completed a Certified Nursing Assistant program. Jennifer started her career in IT as a software developer for the US Navy while in college, then moved on as a software developer for a local chocolate manufacturer, medical journal printer and a small Behavioral Health EHR vendor. As her career progressed, she was led to focus more on operations, customer success, quality assurance of the product and guidance in product development, but she never stopped digging into the code. Jennifer's journey and passion for patient advocacy then led her to vocational rehabilitation where she assisted individuals with disabilities to obtain and maintain employment. This experience has given her a deeper appreciation for the power of an EHR and a deeper empathy for the providers using it. She is looking forward to returning to IT as a member of the ICANotes team.
In her free time, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her family, camping, working on home improvements, gardening, going on hikes, walks, road trips, capturing sunsets, chasing rainbows and handing out Free Hugs at the square in Hanover PA.
