Hello, I am Scott Hemenway and I was Born July 14th, 1970 in St. Paul Minnesota to Harry and Lois Hemenway. We lived in Mahtomedi MN up until 1984 where my parents owned an OK hardware store in White Bear Lake. We moved to St. Petersburg, Florida where I attended Highschool and College. In 1991 I moved back to MN and continued my education with additional college studies. In 1993 I was married and 3 short years later my first child Blake was born.  Today I live in Burnsville MN with my wife Marlena and her four children.

Today I own and operate many luxury senior living facilities throughout Minnesota under The Geneva Suites.

My Interests

Growing up in Minnesota I have a love for the game of Hockey. With MN’s 10,000 lakes (Actually, 11,842 lakes of 10 acres or more) I also enjoy the water and boating. When I was younger I would drive to dealerships and test drive their sports cars….Corvette’s, Porsche’s, etc. which has led to an enjoyment of sports cars and racing. To flex my competitive side I enjoy playing Monopoly and Chess.
