While still in medical school, Dr. Mark Mckenna started selling properties, and after graduating in 1999, he built a real estate company. The business that flourished came down in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina struck and he lost millions.

In 2015, the 43-year-old doctor with more than two decades of experience has now ventured on a new company, OVME, that will have an app and give its customers a chance to connect with online practitioners.
In a recent interview with Forbes, Dr. Mark Mckenna spelled out why he chose business over medicine. He told Susan Adams that he turned down lifetime fitness’ order to become their medical director because he wasn’t willing to help someone else build their brand.

Dr. Mark Mckenna says that his new expedition is meant to show gratitude to the community that has given him so much. OVME, under his guidance, has partnered with Make-a-Wish Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps children realize their dreams. They are determined to donate a portion of all the profits from product sales and money from OVME procedures to change a child’s life.
