With a passion for swimsuit design and a little business know-how, this sister with 11 siblings started her own swimwear company five and a half years ago. Now her self-named brand — Kortni Jeane Mix n’ Match — specializes in styles for the whole family and all sizes of bodies. Last year the Provo-based powerhouse landed as No. 4 in BusinessQ’s UV50 Startups to Watch and Kortni gave birth to her first son — which she says is her greatest accomplishment to date. Editor’s note: Remember that family with 12 brothers and sisters? After all our Fab photo shoots were finished, we realized Kortni and Kyler (see page 29) are siblings. Fabulousness runs in the family!
Favorite Superhero “Wonder Woman! Have you seen her crown?! She’s got all the powers of a superhero and she keeps it classy and intelligent. What more could you ask for?”
Super Strength “My ability to stay positive and always be happy. It’s easy for me to just keep on keeping on with little stress, especially when it’s something that can’t be controlled. Don’t get me wrong, I can get crazy, but I usually start and end my day with a smile.”
Kryptonite “My inability to say no. I often take on too much at once, making it difficult (and overwhelming) to do everything to my very best ability. I just keep reminding myself it’s OK to say no, and by saying no I can put more heart and soul into the things I say yes to!”
Save the Day “I’m saving the day on the daily by providing swimwear you can be comfortable and confident in. No swimsuit malfunctions here! Feel free to get out and play or lounge poolside in Kortni Jeane without worry.”
