Dr. Mark Mckenna’s company OVME is much different from other non-invasive cosmetic procedure facilities available in the United States. Not only is Dr. Mark Mckenna licensed to practice medicine and perform surgery by the state boards of medical examiners in both Florida and Georgia, he is also an entrepreneur and businessman who is changing the way the industry operates.
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.
When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans in 2005, Dr. Mark Mckenna did not escape the tragedy and suffered millions of dollars in damages from the disaster. After the storm ended, instead of abandoning his city Dr. Mark Mckenna decided to help with the rebuilding of the city and used his resources to redevelop develop housing for the low and middle-income residents of the city that lost their homes during the hurricane.
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.
