When you stand up for yourself, nothing can hold you back.

Melina Regnier is one courageous cookie, and her story is one of resilience, determination, and passion.

Despite many setbacks, while pursuing her childhood dream of becoming a baker, Mel has never given up and has bounced back stronger each time. From breaking free from a controlling relationship to the never-ending challenges of running her own cake and events businesses, her journey is a triumphant tale of overcoming obstacles and rising to every occasion.

A recurring theme in Mel’s life has been her ability to find the strength to stand on her own two feet, a journey that has served her and made a profound impact paving the way for others navigating similar paths.

Mel’s story is one of grit, determination, and a whole lot of heart. It’s a glorious reminder of the power we all have within us when we relentlessly pursue our dreams.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The importance of making tough choices to fight for your happiness.
  • How being told you can’t do something is the fuel for pursuing it.
  • That childhood hobbies can be the saviour during times of upheaval.
  • How to come back even stronger after years of being told you’re not good enough.
  • The value of accepting support when you’re used to being the one that offers your hand.
  • That when you stand up for yourself, you stand up for others.


With 25 years in the food industry, Melina is an award-winning pastry chef, cake baker, and bread maker. She’s a regular at local farmers’ markets and operates two businesses, Regnier Cakes and Events on Citrus, providing the space and in-house catering for memorable events, including corporate functions, personal gatherings, workshops, parties, and more!
