Our Doctors

DR. LORA EVANS

Dr. Lora Evans grew up in Salisbury, NC where she attended West Rowan High School and graduated 1st in her class while enjoying all-conference success with the basketball and tennis team. She went on to major in zoology at UNC Chapel Hill where she played on the varsity tennis team. After graduating from veterinary school at NCSU, she became the veterinarian and owner of Boulevard Animal Hospital. During her studies, Lora was fortunate to have Dr. Dan Allen and Dr. Les Tremaine, two excellent diagnostics surgeons, mentor her in the science of veterinary medicine and she aspires to channel their charm and professional attitude towards her veterinary duties. Her vision when starting North Hills Animal Hospital was to provide outstanding, personalized care and services in a luxurious facility that is designed to make your beloved pets feel at home.

At last count, Dr. Evans had four dogs: Logan, Lydia, Juan Pablo Montoya, and William. She enjoys basketball, cycling, gardening, and tennis.

DR. CHARLES LIVAUDAIS

Dr. Charles Livaudais grew up along the Gulf Coast and attended Tulane University in New Orleans, where he earned degrees in Business and Law. Dr. Livaudais practiced law for seven years in New Orleans and Raleigh before returning to school to pursue his true vocation of veterinary medicine. He graduated from the N.C. State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001, and spent fifteen years practicing small animal medicine in Cary before he joined the team at North Hills. Dr. Livaudais enjoys all aspects of small animal practice, but takes particular interest in soft tissue surgery and dentistry, feline medicine, and the allergy-based dermatology issues we see so often in this area.

Dr. Livaudais lives in Raleigh with his wife Jean Marie, and their two children. The Livaudais family also includes their yellow Lab Henry, and their gray tabby Sofia. Dr. Livaudais loves to spend free time outdoors with his family, where they can often be found boating, mountain biking, or clay target shooting. His sports allegiances are divided between his North Carolina home (Wolfpack and Panthers) and his Gulf Coast roots (Crimson Tide and Saints).

Dr. Livaudais is a firm believer in combining modern medicine with old fashioned care, and is delighted to work with a team that embraces this concept as its motto.

Our Groomer

MALIA RAMIREZ
Dog Grooming

Malia Ramirez is originally from Pennsylvania and has always had a passion for animals. She started working with dogs as a bather in high school and went on to improve her skills by attending a comprehensive grooming academy. With nearly 10 years of experience she couldn’t see herself doing anything else with as much passion. After grooming many varied dog breeds in the Raleigh area for several years, she has fallen in love with all the area has to offer. Her favorite part of grooming is seeing how much love the dogs have for their owners when they pick up, and how happy their owners are to see their babies after their spa day. She has one dog named Banx, and together they enjoy running, hiking and swimming. When she is not enjoying one of those activites in her free time, Malia is also passionate about fitness and works as a personal trainer. We are very proud to have Malia and her top-notch grooming skills as part of our team here at North Hills!
