Dr. Mark McKenna Practicing Medicine in an ‘Out of this world’ Way

Buckhead residents are happy about the new medical aesthetic practices that they are going to enjoy courtesy of OVME. The aesthetic medical facility is meant to provide professional procedures modeled to enhance the appearance and feelings of residents in Atlanta. The procedures are also meant to boost the self-confidence of the residents and improve their view about life. OVME was developed by Dr. Mark McKenna who recently traded his ShapeMed facility to LifeTime Fitness. The OVME treatment center has four private rooms together with a private consultation room for Dr. McKenna. He developed the OVME idea from his lifetime experience in medical aesthetics with the help of medical technology.

Dr. Mark McKenna is interested in helping the people of Atlanta in realizing themselves by offering medical products and services that yield the best results and applying the right technology to progress elective healthcare services. He has earned a reputation in the community through the invention of minimally invasive medical procedures. Dr. Mark McKenna attended the Tulane School of Medicine where he graduated with a medical degree. He started practicing medicine alongside his father in New Orleans immediately after his graduation. He moved to Atlanta in 2007 and founded ShapeMed, a wellness and aesthetic medical facility. OVME is the product of McKenna’s cumulative innovation of medical procedures of over two decades meant to improve the appearance and feels of clients. The doctor is excited to introduce and progress his ideas at OVME.

Under the leadership of Dr. Mark McKenna, OVME will be busy presenting new procedural technology to clients using the elective aesthetic procedures. The medical facility will be offering various skin and facial services such as injection of neurotoxins, demal fillers and Vivace miconeedling. Neurotoxins make the skin look young while dermal fillers are used in making the lips full. OVME will also be providing various body and health services like testosterone replacement therapy as well as PRP that is focused on decreasing hair loss in men with baldness. OVME will also be introducing a new weight management solution that starts with analyzing the DNA of patients. This new venture is a way of giving back to the community for Dr. McKenna just like he helped the victims of the Hurricane Katrina incident by developing cheaper housing solutions.

Susan McGalla Leading Women Beyond the Glass Ceiling – No Hammer Needed

Statistics show businesses with gender diversity are 15% more likely to outperform limited-diversity companies. However, according to a recent article, only a small percentage of top positions in S&P 500 companies are held by women. One woman who proves gender doesn’t have to be obstacle on the corporate ladder is Susan McGalla, the Vice President of Business Strategy and Creative Development for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Also the founder of P3 Executive Consulting, McGalla has led the way for women in several male-dominated companies – and, with the Steelers, whole industries. She graduated from Mount Union College before beginning her career at the Joseph Horne Company. In 1994, she joined American Eagle as a divisional merchandise buyer, rising through the ranks to head the flagship brand and later become president and CMO of the entire company where all previous executives were men.

At AEO, McGalla was responsible for P&L revenues of $3B, four brands and an e-commerce site. For the Steelers, she brought her marketing skills and technical expertise to the table by revamping the team’s online store. The Steelers’ Wear What We Wear campaign, which McGalla called “a new way of shopping” on, featured gear that the Steelers wear off the field, updated at each home game with new items.

Never one to back down from hard work, Susan believes the path forward for gender diversity in business is through executive sponsorships and corporate incentives to promote women in leadership positions. For herself, she credits her parents for her confidence in working with both men and women. McGalla was born and raised with her two brothers; her father was a local football coach who didn’t treat her any differently because she was a girl.

While it’s important for women to support each other in the workplace, McGalla’s approach is to head into any boardroom with confidence, even if you’re the only woman there. The data already shows that when companies foster gender diversity, they become even more successful. Susan’s story backs that up, and by sharing it, she is leading by example.
