She attended Cornell University and received a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science, and then went on to obtain a DVM degree from Tufts University in 2011. She has worked in both general practice and emergency medicine. She has special interests in internal medicine, emergency surgery, and dentistry.  Dr Belliveau built a small home in Naples, Maine in 2012.  She has worked at Lake Region Animal Hospital since 2012, mostly as a part-time veterinarian while working full-time in emergency care. In 2019 she purchased Lake Region Animal Hospital from Dr. Griffin and his wife Lisa, who have decided to retire, and she is now available for appointments full-time at Lake Region.
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. One of her favorite places to visit is the Highlands of Scotland. She is happily owned by an English Shepherd named Bennett, and 3 cats – Bergie (go Bruins!), Dalwhinnie and Astrid.
