Dez Melenka



I’m a small town Gibbons girl who never stopped talking, dreaming or believing it’s all really possible. I am a Mom, wife, sister and daughter first. I am a journalist, entrepreneur, designer, community builder, storyteller, and daydreamer who can get lost in the imagination of my own thoughts.

After 15 years building and cultivating a career at CTV News where I accumulated 5 national and 4 international awards for storytelling…I cartwheeled into the world of entrepreneurship. EEEK. I say cartwheel because there are days I’m hands up in the air excited and days I feel buried by the weight of responsibility.

I co-founded The Creative Hive with one of my best friends and most talented videographers I know, Mike Tighe. We transformed a warehouse into a community coworking space that entices the creative out of everyone and is a unique event space where what you dream comes to life. I am learning to share my story alongside others, learning to be a business owner, and learning that asking for help is okay.

I love it. I love life. And I love that my family is there with me every step of the way. Now, what my “about” will look like in five years is still being developed…stay tuned.
