Dr. Mark McKenna is the founder of OVME, which is a medical aesthetics company that looks to disrupt the industry with new innovations. He founded it after working in the medical aesthetic field for many years and feels like he has discovered plenty of opportunities for change in the field. Mark gets inspiration by meditating daily, and he is a believer in setting goals to strive towards. Mark feels that his active reading habit makes him a better entrepreneur, and as a health nut, he loves the fact that the amount of people who smoke in the world is on the decline.
If Dr. Mark McKenna could start all over again, he would take more time discovering his passion and slow down a bit. He feels that doing too much without having a direction is pointless, and he also believes in the idea of surrounding himself with people who he feels are smarter in order to be a better person himself. Some of the people who have influenced Mark and the way he thinks are Barack Obama, Michael Bloomberg, and Elon Musk.
Mark McKenna is a Georgia based medical doctor, originally from New Orleans, LA, who is licensed in Medicine and Surgery. He graduated from Tulane University Medical School and afterwards practiced medicine alongside his father. He went on to start up McKenna Venture Investments, which was a boutique real estate investment firm and also acquired Uptown Title, Inc. as well as Universal Mortgage Lending. In 2005, when Hurricane Katrina ravaged much of New Orleans, Mark helped to redevelop low to moderate income housing in an effort to help with the rebuilding of his city.
In 2007, Mark McKenna founded ShapeMed, which was eventually sold to Life Time Fitness Inc.
