Dr. Mark McKenna attended Tulane University Medical school in New Orleans. He is licensed to perform surgery and practice medicine in both Florida and Georgia. After Graduating from Tulane, he went directly into practice with his father, who is also a doctor.
Before starting OVME, Dr. Mark McKenna sharpened his entrepreneurial skills as a real estate investor. He ran his business, McKenna Venture Investments, very successfully until hurricane Katrina wiped out most of the real estate in New Orleans, where the business was located. Dr. Mark McKenna’s strong desire to help people drove him back to medicine after the hurricane devastation. He also went back to school to earn an MBA with a concentration on entrepreneurship.
Using the same business model as Uber, OVME was created. OVME, pronounced,(“Of Me”) is an aesthetics company that helps to connect people with healthcare providers. Still in its preliminary stages, patients are matched according to what their aesthetic needs would be. Dr. Mark McKenna is very aware of the growing industry of aesthetics for both men and women. His new OVME platform is designed to help busy individuals who desire these treatments to schedule appointments via an OVME app. Then, when the procedure permits, a nurse practitioner would be dispatched to the patients location for procedures to be done in the comfort of their home or office. Currently, these procedures would still need to be done at Dr. McKenna’s clinic. However, the future of OVME is a virtual consultation where concerns are addresses and any questions are answered before a doctor or treatment plan is advised.
Dr. McKenna’s vision and success with past businesses has not gone unnoticed. An Atlanta bases venture capitalist firm has invested $4 million dollars into the OVME business and marketing plan. OVME is well on its way to becoming another successful business for Dr. Mark McKenna.
