Dr. S. Mark McKenna is a licensed medical doctor originating from New Orleans. He graduated from Tulane University’s Medical School. He has a license in Surgery and Medicine from the Georgia and Florida State Board of Medical Examiners. After graduation, Dr. Mark started practicing medicine alongside his father while concurrently launching McKenna Venture Investments which is a boutique real estate firm. Dr. McKenna is a dedicated community servant and a passionate patient advocate.
Most of Dr. McKenna’s business interests perished during Hurricane Katrina which destroyed the city of New Orleans. Without losing hope, the doctor actively participated in the aftermath of the storm in rebuilding the city through the redevelopment of low to moderate-income housing. The doctor then relocated to Atlanta where he launched ShapeMed. ShapeMed is an aesthetic and wellness based medical practice. The doctor later sold ShapeMed to Life Time Fitness Inc. in 2014 where he served as the National Medical Director up to 2016. He then moved to OVME in 2017 as the founder and chief executive officer.
The doctor says that his idea to start OVME came from his association with the medical aesthetics industry for over ten years. He grew his practice which he ultimately sold to a publicly traded company. He is a hardworking doctor, father, and husband who wakes up early and goes late to bed. He manages to materialize his ideas by regularly setting goals and practices visualization. He also meditates at least once daily which he qualifies as a recipe for success.
Dr. Mark McKenna has a family of four. Gianne McKenna is Dr. McKenna’s wife. Together, they are the parents to Milana Elle and Ryder. The doctor is currently a member of the Entrepreneurs Organization after serving as a board member of the New Orleans Jazz Festival.
