Change of Career
Working as physician was a short-lived career path for Dr. Mark McKenna. After a short while, he ventured out on his own, and he started own real estate business. Most people who know Dr. McKenna never realised that real estate was one of his primary passions.

He was the founder as well as Chief Executive Officer of three companies: McKenna Crescent Investments, Uptown Title, and Universal Mortgage Lending.
