When the devastating Hurricane Katrina made a windfall in New Orleans, it left its wake a mountain of debris. It destroyed not only properties and infrastructures; it claimed the lives and dreams of many people including real estate investors. One such real estate investor whose fortunes took a serious hit was Dr. Mark McKenna; a trained medical doctor who had successfully ventured into real estate. Undeterred by the loss of his ventures and in a move that is a testimony of his knack for self-reinvention, Dr. McKenna reignited his passion for medicine with an innovative technology-based start-up.

By following in the footsteps of his idols such as Michael Bloomberg, Dr. Mark McKenna studied the healthcare industry with the view of identifying specific product and service gaps in the industry. He saw consumer needs with technology and founded OVME; a company dedicated to offering bespoke elective medical aesthetics services. The company also provides curated elective cosmetic surgery services through collaborative and customer-centric technology-based business environment. By piggybacking their services on technology, Dr. Mark McKenna and his company seeks to improve customer experiences by eliminating constraints to convenient medical aesthetics service delivery. This has seen the company begin the process of developing an app that will allow clients to make appointments conveniently. OVME’s client-focused business model extends beyond innovations. The company boasts of a well-trained, vastly-experienced and dedicated team as well as a diverse service portfolio that targets even male clients.

Dr. Mark McKenna is a board-certified medical practitioner with a medical degree from New Orleans’ Tulane University Medical School. Before successfully venturing into New Orleans’ real estate sector by founding McKenna Venture Investments, he worked as a medical practitioner. He previously worked as a national medical director at Life Time Fitness in addition to working at Uptown Tile and Universal Mortgage Lending in various capacities.

Dr. Mark McKenna is dedicated to giving back to his community. This saw him play an integral role in rebuilding and resettling of families in New Orleans in the aftermath of the devastating Hurricane Katrina. He actively supported the affordable housing initiative that saw hundreds of families resettled. He was a member of New Orleans Jazz Festival’s board too.
