Dr. Mark Mckenna holds his MD, MBA medical degree from Tulane Medical School, but upon his 1999 graduation, he immediately went into the real estate business. Mark practised medicine at the same time as pursuing other business endeavors but felt that he wouldn’t reach his full potential purely in the realm of medicine. Mark turned to these entrepreneurial pursuits because he had decided while still in college that he would have a difficult time making the kind of money he envisioned for himself as a doctor. Dr. Mark McKenna saw his real estate business take a big hit in 2005 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
Mark continued on in real estate for a while and he also worked in the mortgage business with Uptown Title, Inc. and Universal Mortgage. Dr. Mark McKenna fully rekindled his medical passions in 2007 when he started ShapeMed. ShapeMed was a chain that offered Botox and other cosmetic treatments. 2015 saw Mark sell his company to Lifetime Fitness while maintaining a stake in the company. He soon sold his shares in that venture to enter into his current entrepreneurial pursuit OVME Aesthetics.
Dr. Mark McKenna had a particular vision when he opened up OVME. The idea was to create a nationwide chain of medical offices that specialize in cosmetic procedures. OVME also features a mobile app that allows patients to order the services of practitioners who will make house calls. When interviewed by IdeaMensch about where the inspiration for OVME came from, Dr. Mark McKenna opens up that his experience working in the field of medical aesthetics is where the inspiration originally came from.
His initial foray into the industry had seen him grown his first company to the point that it was able to be sold to a publicly traded company. Mark learned much from the experience and wanted to expand on what he had learned already. Today, Mark proudly serves as Chief Executive Officer of OVME as he works to make it the national leader in the field of elective medical procedures. Dr. Mark McKenna and his staff are accomplishing this through the use of some of the leading technology available in the field of medical aesthetics.
