At the age of three, Liz moved to the house just outside of Salt Lake City where she spent the next fifteen years of her life. As the age of five, she decided that her life goal was to know everything. Despite being confronted many times with the fact that this goal is not precisely realistic, she hasn't stopped trying to obtain a generalist education in a specialist world. As a result, Liz is currently a student at BYU, studying Chemistry and English, and in her spare time enjoys watching PBS (especially Nova), knitting things that might by some definition be sweaters, and inventing bizarre Harry Potter theories. Now at the age of twenty-one, she's excited to go tromping through the English countryside for the next two months with some of the coolest people she knows (not to mention her best friend from first grade), even though she has a broken arm.
