Dr. Mark McKenna is a qualified doctor who chose business over medicine. He graduated from Tulane School of Medicine in 1999 and started his real estate company. The New Orleans native practiced medicine alongside his father while he built his business on the side. In 2005, Hurricane Catrina swept his business, and he lost millions of monies. He tried rebuilding it but later dissolved it and moved to Atlanta where he started ShapeMed a group of offices that specialized in cosmetic treatments.
Dr. Mark McKenna sold out his business to lifetime fitness, a big box gym run by the general public and was employed as one of the staff in 2015. A year later, two prominent private equity companies bought lifetime fitness, and he quit because he couldn’t agree with the corporate’s cultures. He revealed to Forbes that he didn’t want to help someone build their brand and that’s why he opted to sell off ShapeMed and turned down offers of being a medical director to any of the entities.
He has a new expedition, OVME, that has brought in the concept of his old business but is applying the use of apps to connect his medical practitioners with clients. Dr. Mark McKenna told Susan Adams of the Forbes that he would outsource doctors from plastic surgery society gatherings and medical trade shows. His idea was to target middle-level practitioners who would carry out the procedures. He has developed his clinic on 1500sq feet on the ground and has a modern finishing with private wings to give their customers a customized and personal experience. OVME will have membership packages with fair pricing to attract and maintain clientele.
In his Spirit of philanthropy, Dr. Mark McKenna came up with this idea as a way of giving back to the community that gave him so much. Under his guidance, the organization is already set to work in partnership with Make-a-Wish Foundation to help children live their dreams. On behalf of OVME, he pledged that a portion of all their returns from procedures done and product sales will be sent as donations to the foundation to help spread the joy of giving and kindness.

Dr. Mark Mckenna grew up in the city of New Orleans and also earned his medical degree in the same city. While he was completing his medical degree at Tulane University, he decided that becoming a doctor wouldn’t provide the type of income that he wanted to earn. This is when he decided to forego his medical training and enter the business world. After graduating from Tulane University in 1999, he decided to open and acquire his own companies in the real estate industry. These companies included a title and mortgage lending company based in his home city of New Orleans and employed around 50 people.

After serving his city, he made the decision to get back into the medical industry by opening the Shape Medical Wellness Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Mark Mckenna stayed with ShapeMed even after it was purchased from him by the chain of fitness centers known as Lifetime Fitness. After Lifetime was purchased privately, he decided that his time with Shape Medical Wellness Center had come to an end and he moved on to a new opportunity. It was at this time that he had the idea to create OVME. A cosmetic procedure company that not only has a retail location but also offers its patients house calls by licensed physicians.
