Undergraduate Student

Carine Lynn Squibb

Junior, Wildlife Science

I was born in Maryland but I have lived in Giles County, Va., on a small cattle farm for most of my life. When I was younger, I spent most of my time either exploring our woods or catching frogs in the streams. I went to Giles High School and the Southwest Virginia Governor’s School, which is based in Pulaski County. In high school, I ran cross country, completed my Gold Award project for Girl Scouts, and presented two papers at the Virginia Junior Academy of Science.

I made the decision to go into natural resources at Virginia Tech when I realized I was far more at home in the wilderness than I ever could be in an office setting. This past summer, I worked in Dr. Dana Hawley’s lab in the biology department, where I assisted with a Ph.D. student’s disease ecology project. In addition to wildlife science, I plan to earn a B.S. degree in biology while at Virginia Tech. I also plan to attend graduate school, pursuing my interests in behavioral ecology and conservation management.
