Real Estate Development
While most people know Dr. McKenna as a real estate enthusiast, not many know how he came to have two passions. A graduate from the Tulane University Medical School, he started practicing medicine in collaboration with his father. It was at this time that he decided to launch his own real estate development firm. McKenna Venture Investments was established, and shortly after, he acquired Universal Mortgage Lending. At the same time, he launched Uptown Title Inc, and the rest is history. His real estate firm offered a wide range of services, including financing and designing projects.
ShapeMed and OVME
When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in August 2005, Dr. McKenna’s businesses were destroyed. After the hurricane, he resolved to help rebuild the New Orleans community by offering low-cost housing for the residents. In 2007, Dr. McKenna moved to Atlanta, GA, where he launched another company called ShapeMed.
ShapeMed was later bought by Life Time Fitness in 2014. Up until 2016, Dr. McKenna was the National Medical Director of the new company. In 2017, he decided to establish another company called OVME, which is a medical aesthetic company whose mission is to reinvent elective healthcare provision.
Apart from his thriving professional life, Dr. McKenna is a family man. He has a wife called Gianine, and they have daughter, Milana Elle. They also own a dog called Ryder. When he is not working, Dr. McKenna loves to hang out with the family. He always tries to set aside time for dinner, so as to catch up with his family duties. In his free time, Dr. McKenna also loves reading.
