As the president and CEO of United Way of Southwest Colorado, Lynn Urban works with other nonprofits and individuals to help residents build more stable lives by focusing on education, health and personal finance. “I have met so many fascinating, interesting and talented people,” she said. “I have learned a lot from a lot of them. New people keep coming to the community and bringing their talents, so it is always new and interesting here.” A former instructor and college dean, she also owns and operates College Plaza Laundry in partnership with her husband, Jeff. As recent empty nesters, they are spending more time riding bikes, playing with their pets and going to movies.
