Dr. Mark McKenna graduated from Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, LA, as a general practitioner, licensed in surgery. As a general practitioner working side-by-side with his father in a New Orleans medical practice, Mark became very interested in launching a new investment business, McKenna Venture Investments. Successfully achieving his goals in real estate development, McKenna acquired Universal Lending and Uptown Title, Inc. With the growth of these two businesses, McKenna had all real estate venues covered from real estate development through real estate closing services.
After Hurricane Katrina swept through the city of New Orleans demolishing the city in 2005, Dr. McKenna was very active in the rebuilding of low to moderate cost housing to bring comfort and beauty back to the city left in such sorrowful condition after the hurricane struck.
In 2007, Dr. McKenna continued his practice as a physician, completed his dedication to the rebuilding of New Orleans, and moves his family and practice to Atlanta, GA. McKenna launches ShapeMed. ShapeMed, a wellness and aesthetic facility devoted to the health and well-being of his patients successfully grew in the size of the practice and popularity. ShapeMed became known as a leading laser/aesthetic center and was then named Allergan Inc. ranked 156th.
