Leigh Ziegler

Administrative Operations Coordinator

Leigh joined the School of Design staff in the summer of 2023, after completing her Masters in Arts Policy and Administration. She is from Youngstown, Ohio, and made the move to Blacksburg. She loves helping everyone that stops by her desk in Burruss Hall, so be sure to say hello! When she is not at the front desk for the School of Design, you can find her crafting and playing bass guitar – especially songs by The Beatles!
