Many people struggle with figuring out what they want to do in their career, especially during their younger years. Dr. Mark McKenna was no different in his youth. The son of a doctor, he was exposed to the industry at an early age and he knew that he wanted to be able to make a difference as an adult.
While Dr. Mark McKenna was interested in the medical field, he didn’t feel secure with just how the industry was structured and knew that he wanted to branch out from the norm. He had always considered himself something of a maverick and spent years trying to figure out how to carve out a place in the industry that would suit his style and skills. Despite his worries, he realized that he was completely wrong and that the medical field was a space that was constantly innovating and changing.
After graduating from Tulane University Medical School, he spent a short time in the medical field before getting into real estate. Dr. Mark McKenna knew that while he had a passion for medicine, he was an entrepreneur at heart. His business was based out of New Orleans and when Hurricane Katrina hit the area and destroyed a large part of his assets, he knew that he had to make a career change.
Instead of abandoning the area during their time of hardship, Dr. Mark McKenna aided in the cleanup efforts in a variety of different ways before going back to the medical field. He knew that he wanted to advocate for patients and help them achieve their goals aesthetically to contribute to their overall wellness. To do this, he decided that it was time to overturn the current aesthetic medicine business model and he proceeded to do just that.
In 2018, Dr. Mark McKenna launched his newest business and medical venture, OVME, with goals to provide patients with an experience unlike any other that was available. Combining high-quality medical care with the latest technology, OVME is able to provide services like Botox and skin treatments in a comfortable setting that ensures the safety of their patients.
