Dr. Mark McKenna earned his doctorate at the Tulane University Medical School in New Orleans, Louisiana. He was following in the path that his father had started by being a doctor, but after graduating from Tulane he realized that he wanted something more out of life. So, he started investing in real estate in New Orleans (before Hurricane Katrina in 2005). Tragically, his real estate portfolio worth upwards of $5,000,000 lost half of its value overnight when the hurricane hit. In addition to the losses from the hurricane, there was writing on the wall from a few different people and so he decided to pack it all up and move to Atlanta, Georgia.
In Atlanta, he started a new and created boutique medical services in partnership with Lifetime Fitness Gyms. In addition to raising his daughter at the time, Lifetime was bought out by a private Equity Firm for 4 billion dollars. In his leaving of Lifetime and selling his medical services business named ShapeMed for 4 million dollars, he decided to continue down the entrepreneurial route and invest his time into creating environments and experiences that are more accessible to the public that had previously been so.
With his flagship store in Atlanta on Peachtree Street, Dr. Mark McKenna will allow clients to have a more personalized experience. Dr. Mark McKenna has become something of a celebrity type in Atlanta. He is creating a mobile application and hiring various forms of doctors who are trained in Botox injections to make house visits to clients; in essence, Dr. Mark McKenna is harnessing the skills of nurse practitioners, dermatologists, and plastic surgeons. Dr. Mark McKenna is also a philanthropist and will be donating some of the profits from his Botox injection company, OVME, to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
