Jordan Reeves is the co-founder of the non-profit, Born Just Right. Ever since she was little, this 14-year-old has pushed through expectations and has shown how living with a disability can lead to awesome opportunities. Through public speaking and mentoring other kids with limb differences, Jordan works to change attitudes around physical differences. Jordan is currently changing what we think about disability by designing a body enhancement (a 3d printed prosthetic) that allows her to shoot biodegradable sparkles for her alter ego, Glitter Girl. Jordan has shown off her work on The Rachael Ray Show, MakerFaire, TEDx, AIGA, Parson’s Design School, and many other events across the country. Her experience with design has given her a chance to consult and offer insight to large brands across many different genres. Jordan is also one of four founding members of the STEAM Squad, a group of girls who work together to get other kids involved in science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Jordan and her mom wrote a book with Simon & Schuster! BORN JUST RIGHT the book appeared on shelves June 4, 2019.
Jen Lee Reeves is co-founder and executive director of Born Just Right. She’s also a mom to Cameron and Jordan and wife to Randy. Born Just Right evolved from Jen’s experience as a parent and led to her work as an ally in the disability community. When she isn’t working for Born Just Right, she’s a digital director at the University of Missouri and a training consultant. She is an alumna of the social strategy team at AARP in Washington, DC. She also spent years as a television news producer. Jen also taught digital journalism at the Missouri School of Journalism while managing an NBC affiliate newsroom. To relax, Jen loves to travel with her family of four (including husband, Randy), take photos of the beauty around her, and enjoy music and good food. She is incredibly proud to see Born Just Right grow as an organization and is excited to see what is ahead for the BOOSTxBJR workshops and the Make Just Right youth design consultancy.
