Dr. Mark McKenna: Survivor, Entrepreneur

Posted on by

Some of the businesses that have been hit by any of the hurricanes may or may not have decided to rebuild after the floods were gone. Dr. Mark McKenna was no exception, making it through Hurricane Katrina, and having to rebuild his real estate business.

Who is Dr. Mark McKenna?

Dr. Mark McKenna did earn his medical degree from Tulane Medical School in 1999 but instead of becoming a doctor like his father, he decided to build a real estate business in New Orleans. He did decide to close this business though to move to Atlanta, Georgia. Here he opened up ShapeMed which is a chain that offered cosmetic treatments, laser hair removal, and counseling for nutrition and weight management. In 2015 though, Dr. McKenna sold ShapeMed to Lifetime Fitness, and then joined their staff. Although in 2016 he decided it wasn’t for him so he quit.

OVME

In 2017, Dr. Mark McKenna decided to start a new venture which opened its door in March 2018. This new venture he named OVME which is pronounced “of me.” His vision for OVME is to be a national chain of cosmetic medical offices that also has an app that functions like that of Uber. This way customers will be able to contact freelance practitioners, and these practitioners will make house calls on demand.

OVME is going to offer a skin and facial services, body and health services, and new solutions to weight management. These include injections of neurotoxins, dermal fillers, vivace micro-needling, testosterone replacement therapy, and PRP, each with their own specialty. You are also able to become a member of OVME which includes special benefits.

Dr. Mark McKenna goes above and beyond when it comes to his profits with OVME. He has decided that a portion of the proceeds from all the sales of the products and procedures are going to be going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation who he has partnered with.

Dr. Mark McKenna – 2018’s Newest Medical Maverick

Posted on by

You could call Dr. Mark McKenna a jack of all trades in the entrepreneur world. In 1999 after graduating from college, Dr. Mark McKenna had decided making money would be tough in the medicine world, and so instead built a real estate business in New Orleans. After Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005, Dr. Mark McKenna lost millions of dollars overnight. Throw in some other business ventures along the way like his company, ShapeMed– a chain of offices specializing in botox, laser hair removal, and health and weight loss counseling– and working at the big box gym chain Lifetime Fitness and now we end up here in 2018 witnessing his newest business venture: OVME.

OVME– pronounced “of me”– is Dr. Mark McKenna’s newest business based in Atlanta, Georgia that will specialize in providing patients with the newest “medical aesthetic experience.” OVME promises to perform and provide minimally invasive procedures designed to enhance the aesthetic looks and emotional feel of patients in Atlanta in around the world to, in hopes, help improve patients’ outlooks on life and build their self-confidence.

Dr. McKenna knew in medical school he wanted to engage different parts of his brain, rather than just focus on medicine and science all the time. When asked about his successful real estate business– a business he built by providing physicals on prisoners for $50 an hour to invest– he stated his real estate business was worth at least $4 million at the time Hurricane Katrina washed everything out.

Now, Dr. Mark McKenna’s newest business venture, OVME, is the newest and greatest creation of the medical maverick. OVME will feature four private, luxury treatment rooms, along with a secluded office for individual consultations. OVME is the product of Dr. McKenna’s belief “that the needs of the medical aesthetic consumer have evolved beyond the stale industry landscape,” the doctor stated at OVME’s grand opening.

Previous and current patients of Dr. Mark McKenna have stated when they step into the OVME building they know they will be in good hands.
