She has worked in both general practice and emergency medicine.

In her spare time, Dr. Belliveau enjoys hiking with her dog and sampling the local microbrews in Maine.  If she can manage a full week off from work, you can usually find her on a plane as she loves to travel.

Growing up I was so blessed to have a mom who nurtured my love of animals by allowing me to have many different pets. I graduated from University of Maine Augusta with a degree in Animal Medical Technology in 2000.  I love my job as a veterinary technician and I can’t imagine doing anything else. Currently, my household consists of my son and 4 cats. My motto is that there is always room for one more! Jennifer has been a veterinary technician with Lake Region Animal Hospital since 2010.

Nick Barnes

Veterinary Assistant

Nick is a Veterinary Assistant that joined our staff in July 2021. Growing up he was the first to volunteer to help take care of a neighbor’s animals, from cats and dogs to sheep and lizards he loves them all! That love for animals eventually transitioned into the professional world as a kennel assistant and manager at local boarding facilities, finally finding a new love in veterinary care. If he isn't spending time caring for animals you will find him out on the water fishing, at home watching sports, or relaxing with some video games. Currently Nick has three dogs and a hedgehog at home, but there is always room for more! Just don’t tell his wife.
