DAVE MCKENZIE
OWNER, OPERATOR

Dave was born in Wisconsin and grew up in Ohio where he attended high school and college. He started his long and stellar career in consumer product sales and management, first with Proctor & Gamble, and later with PepsiCo where he spent over 20 years in sales, sales management, general management, and finally as a VP of Sales and Operations.

Searching for new challenges, Dave left consumer products and started a new career in healthcare with Gambro Healthcare where he oversaw the operation of 60 kidney dialysis centers. When Gambro was purchased by DaVita, Dave took on the additional responsibility of more than 100 dialysis centers. Dave left DaVita to become the President and CEO of LaVie Florida, the largest long-term care chain in Florida. When LaVie was sold, Dave became the President and CEO of Diabetes America, a chain of comprehensive diabetes care centers in Texas.

Dave came to Austin to join an old friend in a start-up and in early 2015 decided to retire. Retirement was short lived once Dave found out that retirement wasn’t challenging enough. With a desire to stay in Austin, Dave started researching healthcare-related business that he could start on his own, and LaserFocus Tattoo Removal was born.

“I see an opportunity to support people who are transitioning through life,” Dave said. “I don’t look at this opportunity as merely tattoo removal, but rather as a chance to provide substantial support while transitioning to a new chapter in life where the results will be profound.”

“Our goal is to provide our customers with ‘Laser Focused’ attention to tattoo removal (we will only do one thing), the best technology available, and education that allows our customers to make the best decisions.”

When not working Dave spends most of his free time in the gym or on his bicycle. He has two children, Taylor (27) and Zach (26), both of whom are pursuing their own careers in Florida.

JESSICA WRIGHT, MD
MEDICAL DIRECTOR

Dr. Jessica Wright grew up in West Virginia, studying at West Virginia Wesleyan College and completing medical school at West Virginia University. She attended Louisiana State University for her residency in General Surgery, and then worked as a trauma surgeon in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Though trauma surgery was an exciting field, it was also very demanding of her time. In order to be able to someday have a family life, Dr. Wright shifted her practice to emergency medicine and wound care surgery.

While in Louisiana, Dr. Wright met and married her husband, Dr. Geremy L. Sanders. Dr. Sanders, a graduate of St. Edward’s University, was anxious to move his growing family back to Austin. Dr. Wright decided it was time to pursue her long-time interest in aesthetic medicine, having dealt with her own skin issues throughout the years, especially during and after her pregnancies.

Dr. Wright is very well versed in laser physics and can help you achieve your best skin.
