About Jason Hoke, MD
Dr. Hoke began his medical career in Oxford in 2001, when he and two partners, Drs. Nathan Morris and Michael Fain, created Indian Creek Family Health Center. Over the course of the next 10 years, their practice grew from these three providers to eleven providers caring for patients at four different offices. In 2014, Indian Creek joined Kettering Health Network, and continues to be a part of this strong network of physicians. Over the next several years, Dr. Hoke felt a strong calling to return to the freedom of owning an independent medical practice, where he could ensure the needs of the patient were always the top priority. From the beginning of his time in Oxford, Dr. Hoke has been passionate about delivering high quality, all-encompassing care at an affordable cost. With the creation of Hoke Direct Primary Care, he will have the opportunity to fully embrace this calling he has for healthcare delivery.
Jason and Jennifer, his beautiful (and, oh so patient) wife of over 20 years, have six children, whom they have had the awesome opportunity to homeschool. The couple enjoys the opportunity to teach at their children’s homeschool coop, and creating family memories together. Their three boys are active in soccer, and their three girls enjoy dance. The family is active in the choir and many other activities at their church in Camden, Ohio. In their free time, they enjoy spending time outdoors, cooking together, relaxing with a good movie, or cheering for the Bengals (although Jason will forever be a diehard Browns fan!). They are proud to call Oxford home, and enjoy many of the amenities this college town has to offer.

About Kara Hornung, RN
Kara entered the medical field in 2007 as a nurse's aide working at McCullough Hyde Memorial Hospital. While working there, she attended Ivy Tech Community College, graduating in 2010 as a Registered Nurse.
In nearly ten years at the hospital, she grew into a multifaceted nurse. She worked on the Inpatient Care Unit, the Intensive Care Unit, and then transferred to the Emergency Department, where she spent the greater part of her career as an ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) Charge Nurse. She made compassion a priority and vowed to always see patients as people, not numbers.
In 2015, she escaped the hectic hospital setting and took a position at the office of Good Medicine. She enjoyed the calm atmosphere of the office setting, allowing relationships to form with patients and coworkers. She states, “It is always nice to see familiar faces, and get to know new ones.” We are excited to have her as an integral part of our team!
Outside the office, you can find her with her best friend, her husband of nine years. She is also a notorious animal lover, and could not possibly imagine life without her “fur-babies”. She also enjoys spending time with her beloved family and friends, traveling, fitness, fishing the lake with her husband, and tackling home improvement projects!
About Debbie Shrader, RN
Debbie grew up in Oxford, Ohio and graduated with Honors with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the College of Mount St. Joseph (Cincinnati) in 1990. Her first post-graduate job was at McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital as a Medical/Surgical Nurse. She then spent 10 years moving around the country with her husband, Steve, who was on Active Duty in the Air Force. Debbie continued to serve patient needs in various areas: as a Cardiac and Medical/Surgical Care nurse in New Jersey, as a Diabetic Educator in Oklahoma, and as a Nursing Home Patient Care Coordinator in Mississippi. After returning to Ohio, Debbie taught prevention and nutrition in a local elementary school. Most recently, she worked as a nurse in Allergy and Asthma.
She and Steve have two beautiful daughters, Adelle and Rebekah, who are now both grown and newlyweds to wonderful young men. When the girls were still at home, the family was very active in an Oxford homeschool Co-Op.
Outside of work, Debbie can be found either at church or at home walking her three canines – two German Shepard puppies and an Anatolian Shepherd -- on their farmland. Debbie is heavily involved in the Children’s Ministries at her local church. Her hobbies include reading, walking/hiking/camping, 4-wheeling excursions, and spending time with her family and friends. Debbie is grateful for the opportunity to work alongside Dr. Hoke and to have the freedom to put patient care first.
Family … simplified.
About Michelle Schomaker
Michelle was raised in Fairfield, Ohio and went to Cincinnati State where she studied Occupational Therapy Assisting. During her studies, she worked in a Physical Therapy Clinic as an aide. Shortly thereafter, she was married and her focus shifted to her new role as a stay at home mother. Michelle and her husband have three children, with their eldest son already having graduated from Talawanda and pursuing firefighter training. Michelle has been intimately involved with homeschooling their other two children for the last 4 years. Her younger son is active in the Talawanda marching band, and her daughter is involved in soccer. As the children have gotten older, Michelle has again felt the call to work outside of the home. She has worked in the community for Talawanda Schools and Miami University, but has always maintained an interest in the medical field. She was very excited to join the Hoke DPC team as an office receptionist/assistant.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Brian, and the rest of the family. She enjoys helping him in the garden and 4-H activities with their kids. She teaches at their homeschool co-op and is involved with the teenage ministry at church. She likes decorating, being crafty, knitting, and refurbishing old furniture
