Dr. Mark McKenna is an MD with an MBA. His business prowess is as impressive as his achievements in the medical field. McKenna has both a medical degree from Tulane University in New Orleans and an MBA from an online university that he earned while practicing medicine and real estate. While working for his father’s medical practice in Louisiana, he founded and became chief executive officer of McKenna Venture Investments; a real estate investment firm. He also was chief executive officer of Uptown Title and Universal Mortgage Lending. These real estate companies employed over fifty employees throughout the years.
When Hurricane Katrina hit Dr. Mark McKenna’s beloved city of New Orleans, he did not escape the devastation. His business lost millions in one day, but his love of the community led him to use what was left of his resources to help redevelop low and moderate income housing in the area. After the hurricane, the real estate market in the area quickly collapsed and people were being given loans with zero income and one hundred percent financing. This led Dr. Mark McKenna to venture back into medicine and out of New Orleans.
Dr. Mark McKenna moved to Atlanta both to join his girlfriend who had recently relocated there and to start a new medical practice known as ShapeMed. ShapeMed is a medical center that provides elective, aesthetic procedures such as Botox, weight loss services and hair removal. They are known as one of Atlanta’s premier center for aesthetic procedures at a reasonable price. McKenna accepted an offer from Life Time Fitness Inc. that came with the position of National Medical Director for their company. ShapeMed Clinics were open in select locations.
Dr. Mark McKenna has moved on to found OVME, a medical company that offers elective, aesthetic services with the patient’s comfort and convenience in mind. The company offers procedures in a more comfortable environment than a doctor’s office, both in their retail locations and in the patient’s own home or even office in some cases. Currently OVME, pronounced “of me”, has retail locations in Nashville and Atlanta with plans to expand to Las Vegas and other cities.
