When Dr. Freeman decided to open his own practice he needed cheap labor, and who better to fill that position than his wife, Whitney! That’s right - Reno Eye Institute is a family-owned business and when we first opened our doors we were the only “employees.” As the practice has grown Whitney has shifted into the role of Practice Manager. She misses the patient interaction and is thrilled when a patient asks to say hi when they return to the office.
Dave and Whitney met in 1997 as undergraduates at The University of Nevada. They both graduated in 2001, got married in 2003, spent two years in Las Vegas for medical school rotations, and then moved to Denver for four years for Dave’s residency. They had their son in 2010 and moved back to Reno that same year. Whitney earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, with a major in Marketing and worked in a variety of Account Management positions for clients in diverse industries while employed at different advertising agencies.
Whitney has been a member of the Alliance with the Washoe County Medical Society (AWCMS) since 2010 and helped the organization redesign their logo. Whitney was the founder and Chair for the AWCMS gala which raised over $75k for the Ridge House, a local non-profit organization. Whitney also served on the Board of Directors for The Great Reno Balloon Race from 2017 - 2020. Whitney’s favorite thing to do is spend time with family and friends.
