Dr. Lucore has been with Cox Health Monett working in the Family Practice and Obstetrics clinic for the past ten years and is currently serving as Chief of Staff. This role has allowed her to lead the strategic planning committee for the newly opened hospital and clinic in Monett, a merging of three family medicine clinics. Dr. Lucore was voted "Best Pediatrician" in 2020 by the local newspaper. Dr. Lucore enjoys the broad spectrum of family medicine, caring for mothers and newborns to elder end-of-life care.
