Meet Emily

Emily H. Geddes

As a full partner in Hutchison Solutions and Me2 Solutions, Emily Geddes specializes in making order from chaos. Whether she’s showing a new non-profit how to get the biggest bang for their buck, or helping an established business simplify and streamline their processes – Emily is the business administrator and executive who has your back when you’re overwhelmed.

As a Howard W. Hunter Scholar, Emily earned a full scholarship to Brigham Young University. She speaks German, knows American Sign Language, and lived in Europe during college. As a teenager, Emily interned at CEBAF – a continuous electron beam accelerator facility in Virginia – and strongly considered becoming a physicist before earning a B.A. in Theatre. After moving to Spokane in 1999, Emily spent ten years working in medical administration and received an MBA from Eastern Washington University.

That unique combination of theatre, healthcare, and business training that makes her a problem-solving machine. As a stage manager, Emily learned to coordinate huge projects and push teams to think practically in a crisis. During her decade of work in medical administration and credentialing, Emily studied how to make bureaucracies faster, leaner, and more effectively. Combined with her MBA and non-profit experience, this expertise allow Emily to see patterns in the way information, people, and paperwork flows through organizations. What’s more – she understands the role individual stress plays in each person’s performance, and excels at finding breathing room in the busiest workflow.

Stuff to Know

In the Beginning...
Emily grew up as a Navy brat moving all over the U.S. – from Florida to Hawaii, and California to Virginia. When she was younger, her family insisted that she “walked on water, glowed in the dark, and leaped tall buildings in a single bound.” It wasn’t much of an exaggeration: Emily played oboe, excelled in theatre, interned at the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF), graduated as Valedictorian of her high school class, and jumped out of an airplane at 10,000 feet. Since then, she’s worked in medical administration, non-profit development, and process improvement. Emily’s ability to exceed expectations while delivering practical solutions helps her clients stabilize and grow.
