McKenna finds it helpful to surround himself with people who are more skilled, with the aim of learning a thing or two from them. He has also learned the trick of thinking through any ideas, which help in their actualization. These two life lessons have played a big role in his development as an aesthetic surgeon and entrepreneur. His background training in medicine and health at the Tulane University Medical School has also been very instrumental in his career. His dedication has always lied in his patients and how he can consistently offer them good service.
Unlike other medical professionals, his career began in the real estate development sector. He had started a company in New Orleans named McKenna Venture Investments. His interests would then cross over to finance which led him to establish two firms in the field, Universal Mortgage Lending and Uptown Title Inc. All the while, he was involved with his father’s medical practice where he also worked. His life made a turnaround in 2005 after he incurred losses as a result of the Hurricane Katrina. This event made him concentrate fully in medicine, relocating two years later to Atlanta. He immediately ventured to aesthetic medicine by starting ShapeMed which he sold to Life Time Fitness seven years later. His skills could not be overlooked as the company gave him the privilege to be the National Director of ShapeMed, a post he left in July last year.
Over the duration of his career, he was keen to notice the areas in aesthetic medicine that needed improvement. As a dedicated medical practitioner, he desired to change the situation thereby launching his practice, OVME. The organization that launched in July this year is set to redefine the aesthetic and wellness medicine industry. It is technologically equipped to give patients an unprecedented experience.
