Dr. Mark McKenna Reveals Some Inside Information About Things To Come Relating To OVME

Dr. Mark McKenna is a healthcare entrepreneur who has created something very special with his company OVME. This company helps people by offering them a way to change something about themselves without having to leave the comfort of their own home. Some of the patients of OVME hope to remove scars or other blemishes on their body, and some of them wish to appear younger and more vibrant. The cosmetic industry is in existence to offer people cosmetic medicines or procedures that can do these things for them. The unique thing about OVME is the fact that it connects patients with cosmetic medical professionals who can come to their house.

Dr. Mark McKenna came from humble beginnings and attended Tulane University Medical School where he received his medical degree. Instead of going directly into medicine, he decided to get into real estate. The unfortunate thing was that he got into real estate in New Orleans, and this happened right before Hurricane Katrina hit. After watching his business get decimated, he helped others in the city by building affordable housing. Once he felt like he had done enough, he decided to move to Atlanta, Georgia for a fresh start.

In Atlanta, DR. Mark McKenna created Health company, which was a huge success, and then he sold that company and took the profits to create OVME. He has commented on the fact that the medical aesthetic industry is not serving its customers by providing them with services and products that are up-to-date. Instead, the industry is stale and falling behind, according to Dr. McKenna. OVME is his answer to this stale and declining industry, and he expects that it will reinvigorate it by offering an experience that is unparalleled.

Dr. Mark McKenna has talked about the fact that people will still need to visit an OVME office for the time being. He also revealed that this will be changing over-time because what he is busy setting up is something that is more akin to Uber than a medical aesthetics company. The only thing that a patient will still have to do ahead of time is to book a consultation and go through with it.

Victoria Doramus Battle Against Drug Addiction

Victoria Doramus is a market trend analyst and a recovering expert. As a 26-year-old in 2011, she went to her first rehab, which she checked out after 45 days and returned to Los Angeles but did not overcome her addiction. Victoria tried changing friends, moving to different states and even going back to college in London and yet still did not get the help she needed. She eventually went to rehab in Connecticut in 2016 with the hope of getting better and proving to her mother, a cancer patient, that she had everything under control but in the process lost everything including her friends and family.

In 2017, Victoria Doramus flew to Austin and joined Burning tree, a rehabilitation facility with a 12 step based program with a boot camp approach. The whole day was aligned with activities ranging from prayer and meditation to chores and later meetings that allowed the patients to acknowledge their bad choices without feeling like victims. In the process, they would get a clear understanding of their situations from awareness and connection to supreme powers.After serving her time in the facility, Ms. Doramus left to work an average of 35 hrs in Dallas. After four months of working, she moved to New York and joined non-profit organizations that focused on addiction with the aim of helping others who had the same problem.

The recovering addict is hoping to start a center in New York based on the 12 steps and has written a book, Adderall, that talks about her journey and experience throughout the addiction period but has not been published yet. According to her addiction is not about the drugs but the results that cause a problem bigger than an individual. She believes that change is possible and it is upon anyone struggling with addiction to make efforts and find their way into sobriety. Check out Victoria’s closet at Tradesy.
