Dr. Mark McKenna – Transitioning From Doctor to an Entrepreneur

McKenna is a medical practitioner and entrepreneur with a rich medical experience in medical aesthetic. Hailing from New Orleans but currently residing in Atlanta, Georgia, the medical maverick holds a degree in Medical Studies from Tulane Medical School. Having graduated from Tulane University in 1999, he settled in New Orleans and started a real estate business there. However, he suffered heavily from the 2005’s Hurricane Katrina when he lost millions following the natural disaster. Although he rebuilt his company, he later dissolved it and relocated to Atlanta.

Today, Dr. Mark Mckenna is the brilliant creation behind ShapeMed, a group of clinics that provided residents of Greater Georgia Area with a variety of cosmetic services, ranging from laser hair removal to Botox injections. He later sold ShapeMed to Lifetime Fitness, a chain of companies providing multiple health& fitness products and services. Moreover, Dr. Mark Mckenna became a staff member of Lifetime Fitness, only to quit one year after the group was traded via private equity. But the 43-year old medical guru is working on a different venture altogether. His new company, OVME is set to be launched early next year.

Mark Mckenna promises to offer his cosmetic patients with minimally invasive treatment procedures carefully designed to enhance the appearance of his patients. OVME will become a nationwide chain of medical clinics. The innovative entrepreneur hopes to launch an app that will work similar to Uber for his Botox patients. With the new OVME app, patients will be linked with authorized freelance practitioners. The practitioners will be making house calls on requests. In March next year, OVME will be taking its services to Buckhead area, where four luxury treatment rooms will be launched. His new venture will also focus on introducing the latest technology in the cosmetic industry. In a latest exclusive with Forbes, he explained why he preferred business to medicine and stated that economic changes could affect medical practice.


Many know Dr. Mark Mckenna as a medical practitioner offering cosmetic treatments. Nevertheless, the medical maverick is a shrewd investor with an exciting history. With his newly to be launched company, his reputation will soar tremendously.
