Moment Made Possible by Enjoy Life

I was able to achieve two dreams: 1) starting and running a business; and 2) doing something that truly makes a difference in people’s lives.

Moment Made Possible by Enjoy Life

There are so many to mention, it is hard to single out just one. The greatest experience I’ve had and continue to have is the opportunity to meet thousands of families to whom our products make a difference, allowing them to eat freely and enjoy life to its fullest. I know it sounds like an advertisement, but it is the best part of my job; I’m paid to interact daily with our community who simply want to share their love. These moments would not be possible anywhere else other than Enjoy Life.

I will never forget working a Gluten Free Event in Nashville where I met Ryan. He had multiple food allergies and was able to eat everything on our display table without worry. It was great to see first hand how our products make a difference!

Moment Made Possible by Enjoy Life

Because Enjoy Life Foods exists, I have been able to share our products with family friends who live with food allergies. I’ve been able to make a difference in their lives, just by sharing a box of cookies. The gratitude they express and the love they have for our foods really gives meaning to my work each and every day.

Since starting at Enjoy Life, I have learned how to better understand and manage my own gluten intolerance, and have had the privilege of helping thousands of families around the world, afflicted with food allergies and intolerances, learn how to better cope and live with their own dietary restrictions.


Kayce Ledford email

Field Coordinator – Customer Events

Moment Made Possible by Enjoy Life

Enjoy Life at various events, I have learned how to manage my diet outside of my comfort zone – I refuse to allow my dietary restrictions (wheat, dairy, eggs, tree nuts) to limit my personal experiences. Without my opportunity with Enjoy Life, I may have settled in comfortably in my kitchen forever, thus, not exploring my full potential in life or meeting others like me. This Southern girl also had the opportunity to see the Pacific Ocean for the first time during my time in Pasadena for the Celiac Disease Foundation Expo!
