Even A Hurricane Can Not Slow Down Dr. Mark McKenna

Dr. Mark McKenna went to medical school in the hopes of one day working in his dad’s medical practice. He felt that working in the medical field would be fulfilling as well as a good way to make money. However, while getting his medical degree from Tulane University, his ideal had changed a bit. Dr. Mark McKenna realized that it was not easy to make money and he struggled to make ends meet. In order to bring in more money, he decided to make some investments.

These investments lead to a business called McKenna Venture Investments. He had to pick up more work to pay for these investments, but the investments started making money and McKenna finished medical school and started working with his dad. However, Dr. Mark McKenna realized that it was not as exciting and fulfilling as he once thought it would be, and he decided to end his medical career.

McKenna started working full-time in the real estate industry, and things were going well until Hurricane Katrina. In just a few days, all of McKenna’s hard work was gone, including his five million dollar portfolio. Instead of throwing in the towel, he worked hard to help rebuild New Orleans. One lesson he did learn, however, was real estate was not a solid investment, and he decided it was time to go back to medicine.

Dr. McKenna took his love for medicine and combined it with his entrepreneurial spirit and started OVME. OVME is reinventing health care system. It has taken today’s technology and put making health care decisions in the hands of the consumer. OVME allows customers to make appointments for things like Botox injections and other aesthetic procedures by using an app. The app pairs the customer with the best medical provider in the area for the procedure that the customer wants to be done. Making the whole interaction convenient for everyone. McKenna always knew he wanted to help people and not even a hurricane can get in his way.
