Dr. Mark McKenna: a Man of Many Talents

One of the leading doctors in the medical aesthetics industry in Atlanta is none other than Dr. Mark. He is the founder of the new OVME medical aesthetics company which is one of the fastest growing companies due to its innovative workforce that is committed to reinventing elective healthcare. The company’s success can be attributed to its founder Dr. McKenna who has over ten years’ experience in the medical aesthetics industry.

Dr. Mark McKenna has not always served in the medical field. He was born and raised in New Orleans and graduated from Tulane University after studying medicine. After graduation, he joined his father to practice medicine while at the same time starting McKenna Venture Investments, a real estate development company. Over time he started Universal Mortgage Lending, a mortgage lending company, and Uptown Title Inc. At this point, he had over 50 employees and could handle all aspects of a real estate development project from design, financing, construction, and disposal.

In 2005 Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and left a trail of destruction which did not spare most of Dr. Mark McKenna’s projects. Regardless of the losses he suffered McKenna was actively involved in the rebuilding process of New Orleans by building low to moderate-income housing. This helped a lot of people whose homes had been destroyed by the hurricane to get a new home at an affordable cost.

Dr. Mark relocated to Atlanta, Georgia in 2007 to relaunch his medical career. He started ShapeMed which was an aesthetics based practice. He worked relentlessly for seven years to make ShapeMed not only one of the best medical aesthetics practices in Atlanta but also in the whole country. In 2014, the New York Stock Exchange listed company Life Time Fitness bought ShapeMed and retained Dr. McKenna as their National Medical Director. He served this post till 2016 when he quit going start OVME.

In 2017 Dr. McKenna started OVME with the aim to make it the best medical aesthetics practice in the state. When he’s not working, Dr. McKenna is kept busy at home by his wife and children. He also serves in various organizations like the Entrepreneurs Organization where he advocates for various issues affecting the community.
