Sometimes finding what we are meant to do, can take us time. However, the universe has a way of placing us right where we belong. Dr. Mark McKenna illustrates this statement best. McKenna grew up with a father who was a doctor, with the admiration of what he was doing, he ended up attending Tulane University Medical School as well. After a few years of practicing medicine, McKenna felt like his passion lied in the real estate field.

Being the go-getter he is, he decided to quit medicine and founded the McKenna Venture Investments. The business was well, and the returns were good until the 2005 Hurricane Katrina happened. All his property was destroyed. It was even harder to start over because all his clients and employees were scattered. The real estate business became even harder because many people were acquiring the services in credit.
The only way out was going back to his first love which was medicine. In 2007, Dr Mark McKenna moved to Atlanta, GA where he began ShapeMed. He, however, sold ShapeMed to Life Time Fitness Inc. In 2017, Dr. Mark McKenna founded OVME where he operates as the Chief Executive Officer.
OVME is pronounced as of me, Dr Mark explains that the idea behind the name is to show the impact they leave on someone after their services. They are there to make a difference in the aesthetic industry. This is by bringing the services the customers need to their doorstep. He says that this will help eliminate the official setting of a hospital that makes patients feel sickly.
Dr. Mark McKenna says that one trait that helps in his business is reading a lot of books. There is no limit to learning. His favorite book is “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. He loves the art of visualization. In fact, he says that it is through visualizing that he brings his ideas to life.
The occupants of Buckhead are very excited as they begin their year, this is because they will be able to attain the change they have been desiring on their bodies through OVME. Dr. Mark McKenna is also excited because the services will improve their well-being.
