Dr. Mark McKenna is a graduate of Tulane Medical School. It was while he was still training to become a doctor that he realized the industry was changing and it would be pretty hard to earn a lot as a doctor. Because of this he started a real estate firm in 1999 after he had graduated from college instead of going into medicine. He was very successful building this company up, buying many properties across New Orleans, but that all basically came to an end when Hurricane Katrina put most of the city underwater. He tried to recover by changing his focus to building low and moderate income housing but he saw that the real estate industry was in trouble when anybody could qualify for a loan so he made his exit.
After moving to Atlanta, Dr. Mark McKenna entered the elective healthcare industry by establishing a company called ShapeMed. This offered cosmetic procedures to clients and assisted patient’s efforts to lose weight in a healthy way. This company was very successful and in 2015 a publically traded gym company offered to buy his company, an offer which he accepted. He worked for this company for a few years but eventually decided working for others wasn’t really what he wanted out of life.
OVME is an Atlanta-based company Dr. Mark McKenna established in early 2018. He offers his services in a luxurious clinic that uses the latest technology to help patients. His goal is to reinvent the elective healthcare industry by offering products and services which are tailored to each individual client and the precise results they are looking for.
Another way Dr. Mark McKenna wants to shake up the elective healthcare industry is through a mobile app. This app can be used to bring a licensed cosmetic doctor to them, sort of like Uber’s business model. He says this offers a level of convenience no one else can offer and he envisions this app being used across the United States before too long. He is busy partnering with freelancing practitioners in many American cities in order to make this vision into a reality.
