Dr. Mark McKenna has been able to bring together his business knowledge and that of medicine to come up with two outstanding companies. He started with a real estate organization, but when Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, he lost everything to the floods. At this moment, Dr. Mark McKenna decided to get back to his medical career. He started working with his father in his private business. Dr. Mark had acquired his medical degree from Tulane University Medical School. While working with his father, he identified a sector in the market that most people had not recognized in the way he knew he could. This gave birth to ShapeMed, a sole clinic that later grew to become a broad portfolio. The company is located in Atlanta, Georgia.
The idea behind the ShapeMed was an aesthetic as well as a wellness medical practice which could provide the clients with an easy way to look after their health as well as improving the looks. This made the company look appealing to the LifeTime Fitness Inc. an organization that later bought ShapeMed in 2014 seven years later after its establishment. Dr. Mark McKenna continued to work as the National Medical Director of the Company after it was sold. He was mainly ensuring that the new owners maintained the same standards of customer satisfaction while creating new services at the same time.
The selling of Shape Med did not mark the end of Dr. Mark McKenna’s entrepreneurship journey. He left ShapeMed and Life Time Fitness in 2016 and started focusing on his new business venture. He came up with OVME, an organization that could bring a lot of changes in the way people view health and aesthetics. With an app in one’s phone, a person can book their Botox injections just as one book Uber for a pick up. With the app, the doctors can conduct consultations as well as schedule visits for their patients at home. This will be convenient for the patient as well as focusing on the quality. With discussion and scheduling done through the app, this indicates that the visit will be very successful.
