Dr. Mark McKenna Carries on His Entrepreneurial Inspiration

An ardent patient champion and spirited entrepreneur Dr. Mark McKenna takes us along on his journey.

Dr. McKenna graduated from Tulane University Medical School and began practicing medicine at his father’s clinic. At the same time he got a real estate development firm, McKenna Venture Investments, underway, according to an Ideamensch story (https://ideamensch.com/mark-mckenna/). He later acquired Uptown Title and Universal Mortgage Lending.

Dr. McKenna is a general practitioner licensed in surgery and medicine by the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners and the Georgia State Board of Medical Examiners.

He played an active part in rebuilding New Orleans following the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 by rebuilding housing.

He relocated to Atlanta, Georgia in 2007 to set up ShapeMed, a medical weight loss and non-surgical aesthetic clinic. Aesthetic medicine can be defined as a term for specialties that pay particular attention to making cosmetic appearances better by dealing with conditions that include scars, skin laxity, wrinkles, moles, liver spots, excess fat and unwanted hair. (www.wikipedia.org).

In 2014 ShapeMed was sold to Life Time Fitness. And in July 2017, Dr. McKenna launched his latest venture, OVME, a medical aesthetic company that is revitalizing non-compulsory healthcare.

Dr. McKenna commented in the Ideamensch story where the inspiration for OVME got its start. He pointed out how during his time in the medical aesthetics industry he became aware of the many possibilities that cause confusion in the industry.

He also called attention to how the combination of setting goals on a regular basis and meditating daily in a calm and silent space have developed into his formula for success.

Dr. McKenna said Barack Obama, Elon Musk and Michael Bloomberg are some of the people who have influenced his beliefs. He also loves to read and noted it makes him more productive as a deal maker.

He highly recommends entrepreneurs read Napoleon Hill’s book, Think And Grow Rich, as he found it remarkable.

Dr. McKenna is currently a member of Entrepreneurs Organization and previously worked as a board member of the New Orleans Industrial Development Board. Dr. McKenna and his wife Gianine have a daughter.
