Since graduating from Tulane University’s School of Medicine, Dr. Mark McKenna knew that he would be destined for great things in the medical world. He set out to forge his own path, with the sole purpose of changing the healthcare market. He also holds an MBA and combines that with his medical training to provide his clients with innovative medical service they cannot receive anywhere else. After graduating, Dr. Mark McKenna went out into the world and began practicing with his father. While this was an exciting time for him, he knew that he wanted to do more with his life and he launched his very first business, Dr. Mark McKenna Venture Investments.
Dr. Mark McKenna initially when into real estate as his first passion. While his father practiced medicine and he wanted to join the family business, he found something very exciting about the real estate market. After the loss of his businesses to Hurricane Katrina, his relocation to Atlanta, and his change in perspective, Dr. McKenna chose to rejuvenate his love of medicine. He took the business savvy he learned in real estate and combined it with his medical knowledge to create ShapeMed, a new medical aesthetics company.
In 2014, he sold the booming practice and became the National Medical Director for Life Time Fitness Inc. While his time there was beneficial for him in a business sense and he gained a lot of knowledge, Dr. Mark McKennna knew that he wanted to build something truly amazing. On the heels of his decision to leave, he launched OVME. OVME, pronounced “of me”, is a medical aesthetics company that is approaching elective medical treatment with a twist. McKenna explains that he wanted the medical experience to feel homey and inviting. He wanted to take away the sterile, cold environment typically associated with medical procedures and replace it with something warm. With Dr. McKenna at the helm, OVME is poised to change the way that people chose to engage in elective healthcare treatment, such as Botox. Dr. Mark McKenna is showing that we now live in a world where clients can choose luxury and comfort with their healthcare.
