Our Support Staff

Joanna Martinez


Joanna is a medical assistant and Texas transplant who has brought the perfect combination of empathy, organization, and medical knowledge to the front desk. We greatly rely on her kindness, caring, and slight bit of “Don’t mess with Texas” sass.

Michelle Nguyen

Medical Assistant

Michelle is a true renaissance woman: trilingual, well-traveled, and a graduate of both international affairs and neuroscience at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Tammy Soong

Chief Operating Officer

Tammy Soong is Dr. Thunder’s wife and the Jill-of-all-Trades at Thunder Pain Management. She’s still not entirely sure how she ended up working at the office, but she thinks it has something to do with the fact that she finds her husband’s work extremely worthwhile.

Gina Strasser

Office Manager

Gina Strasser has more than 25 years of management experience, including more than a decade as the operations manager and project coordinator at C*A*R*E Chest. She oversaw operations for Howard’s Chevron, which she managed with her late husband, Carl. Most recently, she was the executive director for the Modern Widows Club.
