In 2005, after hurricane Katrina had come to pass, most of Mark’s real estate developments had been destroyed together with other properties in New Orleans. This event led to re-development efforts that prioritized the creating of low to moderate income housing units. Later in 2007, Mark relocated to the city of Atlanta where he established ShapeMed, which deals in wellness and specific aesthetic centered medical products. This company was later sold to Life Time Fitness. Mark served in the position of National medical director in the firm that acquired his company, a position he held to 2016.

The idea to launch this new company was motivated by the need to disrupt the healthcare industry while delivering excellent service. OVME prides itself in being a consumer-facing brand that is sufficiently technologically enabled to offer medical aesthetics. After developing ShapeMed to a robust company and later selling it to a publicly traded corporation, Mark’s entrepreneurial spirit lived on as he established OVME.
