The Chief Executive Officer of OVME, Dr. Mark McKenna
Dr. Mark McKenna is a licensed doctor. He went to medical school, after which he practiced with his father. To him, medicine was not only about a profession. His heart went out to patients. He had the urge and the drive to help them out, and also help bring up the community. This, he undoubtedly achieved in whole. While working with his father, he ventured into business. The first was a company of real estate development; McKenna Venture Institute. The firm became the beginning of his several ventures in New Orleans, up to 2015.
Upon deciding that a change of locale was necessary, he moved to Atlanta. There, he settled and kept on pursuing various opportunities in both the medical and business fields. In 2007, he developed ShapeMed. It was a medical practice that Mark aimed at directing to the aesthetics industry, and for wellness purposes. ShapeMed was active for only seven years. In 2014, Mark sold it to Life Time Fitness. He then joined the company as its Director. In 2016, he left his role at Life Time Fitness.
He established another company in 2017, and this is where he shifted most of his time and dedication. Because of the much time, he had spent working on aesthetics and thus gaining experience, he saw the need to start OVME.
Dr. McKenna is a man with a good history in both medicine and business. He grew up in New Orleans, schooled there and also started his activities there. His urge to keep going is what has built his reputation, and got him on many interviews of doctors who are entrepreneurs. Dr. Mark studied and graduated from Tulane University, a medical school university.
His wife, Gianine, and children Elle and Ryder; are his motivation. It is not something easy to maintain a family and also work at the same time. But Mark has managed, and he balances this with his typical day having an additional training at Jiu Jitsu. He is a member of some organizations in Atlanta and is also a former board member of two groups in New Orleans.
