Dr. MARK McKENNA Entrepreneur and Medical Goals

Dr. Mark McKenna’s real estate entrepreneurial journey began when he realized that medical practitioners found it hard to earn much. He was still a student of the medical school at Tulane School when he started purchasing real estate.

Real estate entrepreneurship

After his graduation in 1999, Dr. Mark McKenna created a real estate business and ventured full time in it.

Disaster hit New Orleans where his business was based. For almost two years, Mark McKenna helped reconstruct the town. He would purchase broken houses, restore them and then sell them to various investors. The latter would release them to residents on lease terms.

Dr.Mark McKenna’s second passion

In 2007, Dr. Mark McKenna realized that the time to get back to his medical occupation had come. In November, he departed for Atlanta. Shape Med, a wellness and fitness center was opened. Dr. Mark McKenna concentrated on ensuring that the clinic was the best of its kind. This, he did by making sure his staff was highly trained. The clinic offered laser therapy, body weight counseling and nonsurgical aesthetics, all of which were of high quality.

The business flourished, and soon new branches were opened. In 2015 however, Mark sold ShapeMed to Lifetime fitness and joined the staff team as a National Medical Doctor. He resigned one year later when Lifetime was sold to a private equity.

OVME: (“of me”)

Dr. Mark McKenna later joined OVME. His entrepreneurial ambitions and desire to offer affordable services to people led him to venture into the aforementioned medical spa. According to him, OVME is highly technologically controlled. A mobile app is available to all users for easy access during appointment scheduling. The facility offers premium services, some of which include dermal filling, weight management, and testosterone replacement.

Dr. Mark ensured that one could become a member of OVME and such a client can access discounts on a variety of services.

Giving back to the society.

Part of the profits gained at OVME is directed to the ‘Make-a-wish’ foundation, which is a zero profit organization that grants the wishes of children ailing from serious diseases. Apparently, the foundation can offer such wishes after every half an hour. This means that there are lots of profit. Mark accredits this outstanding performance to the facility’s staff members, volunteers, and donors.
