Dr. Mark McKenna- From Medicine to Entrepreneur And Back

Dr. Mark McKenna began his medical career in New Orleans after graduating from Tulane University Medical School in 1999. He spent five years practicing medicine with his father, but he knew that he wanted more.

With his sights set on the real estate development industry, Dr. Mark McKenna made extra money by providing physicals to prisoners. He was able to launch McKenna Venture Investments and numerous other successful companies while simultaneously practicing medicine. When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, Dr. Mark McKenna felt the devastation firsthand. Despite the destruction, he rebuilt his business, and helped to rebuild New Orleans by purchasing, rehabbing, and reselling property to be used for developing low moderate income housing.

In 2007, with an inkling that some changes were coming for the real estate industry, Dr. Mark McKenna moved to Atlanta where he started ShapeMed, a medical practice with a focus on wellness, aesthetics, and providing high quality services. This practice proved to be extremely lucrative, and soon grew to four offices with multi-millions in annual revenue.

In 2014, an offer to purchase ShapeMed came in from Lifetime Fitness. After accepting the offer, he stayed on board as the company’s National Medical Director until 2015 when Lifetime Fitness was acquired by two private equity firms.

With some money in his pocket and a new baby at home, Dr. Mark McKenna saw an opportunity to take a break. He spent time with family, traveled, and developed his next idea.

In July 2017, Dr. Mark McKenna became the founder and Chief Executive Officer of OVME, an industry-changing medical aesthetic company, which focuses on elective healthcare and premium user experience. After raising money through investment firms, like Equity38, he was able to develop his mobile app and open the first OVME clinics in Nashville and Atlanta. This is just the beginning for this revolutionary business.

During his down time, this successful entrepreneur enjoys meditation, reading books, practicing JiuJitsu, and daily breakfast dates with his daughter, proving that even the most successful people need to remember that self-love and family should always be priority.
