Lindzi's career began, at age thirteen, when she created "LPoI," an online entertainment magazine geared toward teenagers. LPoI quickly became established as the online hot spot for celebrity interviews. As the site gained national attention, Lindzi found a fan following.

In 2001, MTV invited Lindzi to appear on The Mandy Moore Show as a "Girl Who Kicks Ass: Behind-the-Scenes of Hollywood." She's also been profiled within Billboard, Time Out, Girl's Life, React, Teen Celebrity, Teen People Online, Twist, All About You, and The Miami Herald, who awarded her with a 2001 Silver Knight honorable mention for serving her community through journalism.

While attending college in Boston, Lindzi focused on communication studies and broadcasting. She received Viacom's AHECTA Award for producing a television segment on Island/Def Jam recording artist Daniel Bedingfield. She spent her summers interning with NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly, Robert DeNiro's Tribeca Productions, and Entertainment Tonight. During college, she also produced a television documentary entitled: "What You Don't Hear: The Music Industry," featuring Maroon 5.
