Dr. Mark McKenna is a successful entrepreneur and medical/surgical doctor, currently founder and CEO of the aesthetic skin care retail business, OVME. Throughout his pursuit in reaching this accomplishment, Dr. Mark McKenna has managed to persevere through challenging hurdles that would have definitely put a halt to the average entrepreneur. He owes a lot of his winning doctoral and entrepreneurial spirit to his parents, who have been a huge influence in his life and have supported his journey since childhood.
Growing up, Dr. Mark McKenna was always a smart and determined kid, loved by his community for how much respect he showed to neighbors and how obedient he was to his parents and teachers. It was only accurate for Mark to want to become a doctor when he got older, as the man that he admired, his father, ran his own medical practice, and, a medical degree is what Mark pursued.
He would graduate from Tulson University Medical School and his dad couldn’t be any happier. He later would bring his son onboard to his practice, where the two would continuously bond and dad would continue to build his wonderful son up and support him extensively.
The two started talking one day about getting into real estate and without further a due the two started a real estate development firm called, McKenna Venture Investments. Mark wanted to expand the business and offer more to the community of New Orleans, so he started two more related businesses called, Universal Mortgage Lending and Uptown Title Inc. He would go on to establish a 50+ employee business. He thanks his dad for all of the supportive advice giving throughout the real estate ride.
Unfortunately, the business would be destroyed in 2005 due to Hurricane Katrina, but Mark would pick up and start a new business in Atlanta, Georgia regarding wellness medical solutions and he would thrive considerably.
Mark`s mother owns a publishing company. He admits that he is extremely fortunate to have such entrepreneuring role models in his parents, and his mother was extremely proud that he became a doctor like his dad, but even though dad is the doctor and has the doctoral experience, she never neglected to give her two cents in his doctoral matters. He is thankful to have such great supportive parents that have stuck by his side since the beginning.
