Dr. Mark McKenna experienced the worst disaster of his life during the destruction and chaos of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. With uninsured properties that got devalued and lost profit as businesses were stalled for months pending the rebuilding of the whole area, the catastrophe led him to re-evaluate his focus and vision. After assisting the victims towards rebuilding their lives through affordable housing redevelopment, he realized that the real estate industry cannot thrive when damage is so immense.
How Visions Were Created One After Another
Dr. Mark Mckenna was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. He took up medicine at Tulane University Medical School and eventually became a licensed physician and surgeon under the validation of the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners and the Georgia State Board of Medical Examiners. It was during his time at Tulane when he discovered his inclination towards the real estate business. After practicing medicine for a while, he ultimately joined his father in the real estate industry.
During the first phase of his venture, he started a mortgage company that eventually became a stable firm. Through his unwavering dedication and passion for the industry, he finally became the founder and CEO of McKenna Crescent Investments, Uptown Title, and Universal Mortgage Lending. His visions began to turn clearer as more opportunities came knocking on his door.
A Blessing in Disguise
When he decided to practice medicine again, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia around November 2007 where he crafted ShapeMed into existence. The business offered various cosmetic treatments such as laser hair removal, weight management via nutrition analysis, and the widely sought after Botox injections. ShapeMed became the pioneer non-surgical aesthetic center in Atlanta and gained full support from patients who believed in the values that the clinic promoted.
The Venture Continues
Dr. Mark Mckenna has never stopped pursuing his passion and making his vision a reality throughout his career. With the launching of OVME, he has changed the landscape of aesthetic medicine again. The focus of OVME is to offer elective healthcare so that patients have the privilege to get treated through the use of the latest technology in the comfort of their homes. Dr. Mark Mckenna and the aesthetic doctors at OVME can perform the procedures even after virtual consultations.
