Toughest class you've taken at BYU?

Believe it or not, my Book Of Mormon class.

If you could play any other sport at BYU, what and why?

I think gymnastics would be a lot of fun, but there's no way I could ever do it because I'm not flexible at all.

Favorite place to go on the road?

When I'm at home, I love to go into San Francisco, go to the beaches in Santa Cruz and go to Yosemite.

Favorite Restaurant in Provo:

Goodwood Grill

What's your most extreme dream/goal?

To travel the world and make a documentary about all the different animals I see.

What is your biggest accomplishment in life so far?

Probably making it onto the BYU swim team having no prior club swimming experience and by only doing summer recreational swimming and high school swimming and water polo.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Back in California, maybe married, and starting my career.

How'd you get started in swimming?

My mom signed me and my sisters up for our summer recreational swim team in our neighborhood when I was only 4, I've been swimming ever since.

What do you do in your free time?

Spend time with my boyfriend Michael back home and hang out with all my boys.

Favorite Restaurant:

It's a tie..The Cheesecake Factory in San Francisco & Fenton's in Oakland.

If you could live some one else's life who would it be?

Any celebrity..it would just be fun to be really rich and not have to worry about money.

Nickname:

Linz

One place you'd like to visit:

Europe..specifically Italy, Rome, & Greece.

Who has had the greatest influence on your swimming career?

I would have to say my swimming friends because I would not have done it for so long if I didn't have as much as I did.

Favorite movie:

Dumb & Dumber

Toughest part of swimming:

Waking up early EVERY morning...even Saturdays..

Favorite Coach's Quote:

"C'mon, you aren't going to let her beat you, are you?"

Jack Bauer or Cosmo?

Honestly, I've never watched 24 before...so I guess I'd have to go with Cosmo!
