Dillon Vance

Operations Director

Dillon manages LiveKAYA’s day-to-day operations, logistics and administration, overseeing our supply chain management, operational budgeting, procedure design and implementation. He is also our primary liaison for our back office website, making sure everything runs smoothly.

Dillon served for five years with the U.S. Marines as an intelligence analyst and excelled in small-unit leadership. Having successfully founded Rolled Mountain Creamery in 2016, he is working towards a degree in business management from the University of Nevada, Reno. Dillon credits his parents for teaching him how to fight for what you want and brings a relentless perseverance to anything he’s involved in.

Dillon brings ferocious integrity to business negotiations, is unafraid to stir it up when change is needed, and deals with conflict head on. He relishes testing himself and creating opportunities with people he loves.

Dillon is proud of LiveKAYA’s commitment to being the best in all that we do, from our ingredients to our systems to our compensation plan. He is passionate that both employees and Brand Partners are backed by the best operation possible as we explore the emerging hemp industry’s limitless potential.

Dustin Vance

Product Development Director

Dustin started learning about the magic of chocolate and the world of business from very early on beside his mom, Dorinda. A classically-trained chocolatier, Dustin brings broad, experiential knowledge from years of running Dorinda’s Chocolates to managing LiveKAYA’s day-to-day product development and manufacturing operations. His experience is backed by extensive leadership training and the imminent completion of his business degree from the University of Nevada, Reno.

Dustin is a product knowledge specialist known for getting things done—especially those things no one else knows how to (or wants to) deal with. Dustin is obsessed with every aspect of chocolate production and pays equally close attention to the evolving hemp market. At heart a thoughtful, discerning and clear-sighted contributor, he pulls people together towards a common goal and often takes center stage as the soft-spoken but well-informed face of the company.

In between helping run two thriving companies and completing his degree, you may spot Dustin on a motorcycle, disappearing into a cloud of dirt alongside his dad and brothers, or enjoying a rare moment of solitude where his best ideas come to light.

LiveKAYA will revolutionize and disrupt this network marketing industry, and I am so blessed to be a part of it.” He believes that magic that happens when you put customers and customer-getters first, and is thrilled to lend his passion and drive to the entire LiveKAYA family.
