Love of outdoors sparks creativity for COTC/OSU’s Leslie Lenzo

Leslie Ann Lenzo, the Senior Graphic Designer for The Ohio State University Newark and Central Ohio Technical College, poses for a portrait at The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College campus in Newark, Ohio on September 20, 2021.

NEWARK – She credits, at least in part, her love of the outdoors for her talent.

“I think spending time outdoors as a child sparked imagination and creativity,” she explained. “Children who are outdoors often find ways to create their own fun and find their place in the natural world.”

She’s the senior graphic designer for both Central Ohio Technical College and The Ohio State University at Newark. She’s Leslie Lenzo.

“Creativity comes naturally to me,” she said, “so I feel fortunate to have found a career that aligns with that strength.”

Leslie (Ann) Lenzo grew up in Coshocton, graduated from Coshocton High School in 1985, then earned a degree in graphic design and photography from The University of Akron in 1990.

“My childhood was hugely influenced by my parents and their passion for all things outdoors,” she said. “Because of them and all the time we spent hiking and exploring, I had a comfort level at an early age with the natural world around me.”

“I think nature inspired me,” she noted, “with color, symmetry, awesomeness and a consistency that gave me a comfort level to do what I do today.”

“And I own horses,” she added. “I ride with my friends all over Ohio and we are constantly amazed by the gorgeous scenery in Ohio.”

Lenzo came to COTC and OSU-N in 2000. Previously, she worked for agencies in Charleston, SC, Akron, Cleveland and Columbus.
