Dr. Mark McKenna is a board-certified surgeon. He has acquired the titles of an MD (Doctor of Medicine) and MBA (Master’s of Business Administration). With both of these licenses, he was able to become a successful doctor and entrepreneur.
Mark McKenna was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Looking up to his father, McKenna decided to lead the same treacherous path as he did. After completing his undergraduate degree, he went on to get his graduate or medical degree. He attended Tulane University Medical School which is also located in New Orleans, Louisiana. After graduation, he went on to complete his surgical residency. By the end of his training, he legally obtained his license to practice medicine in the states of Georgia and Florida. Once he completed his residency and became board certified, he decided to practice medicine right alongside his father. At the same time that they were working together, his father was working on developments of his own company. He launched McKenna Venture Investments which ran as a real estate development firm.
It was after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 that McKenna decided to leave Louisiana. After participating in the rebuilding of houses due to the hurricane, Dr. Mark McKenna moved to Georgia. In 2007, he launched a new business, ShapeMed, in Atlanta, Georgia. ShapeMed is a wellness and aesthetic based medical practice. As he wanted to have a very successful business, he realized that he did not know everything he needed to know in order to keep ShapeMed going successfully. He made the executive decision to sell ShapeMed to Life Time Fitness Inc. in 2014. Dr. Mark McKenna then began working with Life Time Fitness Inc. as the National Medical Director for roughly two years. The following year, once he was more educated and experienced, he decided that he would try the business industry out again. He founded OVME, a company that focuses on establishing elective healthcare. It is well known as a consumer-facing, technology-enabled, medical aesthetics company. So far, Dr. Mark Mckenna has been successful as the CEO of this establishment and is doing so continually.
