Business skill and a medical background often go hand in hand, that is how the term “doctorpreneur” was born. Dr. Mark McKenna, the M.D. with an MBA, is a perfect example of this. McKenna is not just a licensed doctor of surgery and medicine in both Georgia and Florida, he is also a successful real estate mogul. After earning his medical degree from Tulane University, he simultaneously entered the real estate development industry and practiced medicine at his family’s clinic.
Dr. Mark McKenna’s business, McKenna Venture Investments, was based out of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. In one day, Dr. Mark McKenna lost millions. Even after this, he helped rebuild the devastated area with low to moderate income housing. Unfortunately, he saw the collapse of the real estate industry in the area and made the decision to move to Atlanta and go back into medicine with ShapeMed.
ShapeMed specialized in non-surgical, elective, cosmetic procedures. They became known as the affordable, quality Botox provider in the Atlanta area. After years of success, Dr. Mark McKenna took ab offer from Life Time Fitness Inc. for ownership of his business and the position of National Medical Director for the entire company.
After his position of Life Time Fitness, Dr. Mark McKenna raised about four million in capital through various outlets. He used this money to found OVME, a luxury aesthetic medical procedure company that brings quality, free-lance medical providers to patients in a more relaxed setting than a doctor’s office. With two current location in Atlanta and Nashville with plans to open clinics in Las Vegas and other large cities, many of the doctors will also do procedure in the comfort of the patient’s own home. The goal of OVME, pronounced “of me”, is to become the Uber of Botox with an app in development to make the process even more convenient for the consumer. They want to reinvent elective healthcare.
Dr. Mark McKenna is a dedicated family man who practices martial arts every day after eating breakfast with his young daughter. He and his wife also have a loved pomeranian. McKenna was voted as one of Atlanta’s most beautiful residents by Jezebel magazine.
