In Episode 32 we are joined by the beautiful Jenna Hutchison as she shares parts of herself with us she has never shared anywhere else before. This is a heart warming episode of strength and inspiration to do what you’ve always imagined in this life. This episode will certainly bring on a few tears, so have the tissues handy. Jenna is an artist, candle maker, workshop host, founder of a not for profit organisation and a woman to watch. In this episode we sit down to have a conversation about pouring your heart and emotion into your art, leaving the 9 to 5, how our growth is never linear, the pain of losing her father to a rare blood cancer, how when we are in flow the universe provides, the spinal reconstruction surgery that changed her life forever and how having your achievements recognised can make you realise that you are deserving of allowing yourself to appreciate you, after all these years. This is such a stunning episode that I am so proud and so humbled to share with you all today. You can connect with Jenna on instagram at @loveludie happy listening friends! xx

Welcome to The Steph Sanzaro Podcast, today I am joined by the beautiful and talented Jenna Hutchison of Love Ludie.

Jenna is a woman of many talents, from being an artist, to candle maker, art workshop director and the founder of a not for profit organisation… this women is one to watch.

This conversation astounded me. Listening to her journey of strength and triumph, warmed my heart and softened my soul. It is not often that I am so in awe of someone when they are telling me their story, but today is a beautiful example of that.

I believe that through listening to the conversation you will be truly inspired to go after your dreams and to not let anything stop you along your journey.

Jenna opens up to us and shares something so deeply personal that she has never shared anywhere publicly before. I am honoured to hold space for this magical woman and I definitely recommend having tissues on hand, because it is destined to be a tear jerker.

Today Jenna and I gently discuss:

  • recognising our own self worth
  • why pouring your heart and emotion into your art can be cleansing
  • why our growth is never linear in this life
  • how the loss of a loved one changes us forever
  • saying goodbye to the 9 to 5 to pursue a life you always imagined
  • why when you are in flow, the universe provides
  • learning to be organically yourself
  • why we all deserve to slow down and appreciate ourselves
  • why yoga has been so important to Jenna in her journey
  • how spinal reconstruction surgery taught Jenna just how strong she really is and the true power she holds within herself
  • how therapy can hold our soul and validate our experience
  • winning the ANZ creative branding award
  • creating Cleaner Coast her not for profit organisation

This conversation made it’s way into my heart and created so much adoration for the wonderful Jenna.

Listening to her talk so vulnerably and openly about her story has enabled us, the listeners to connect with her on such a deep level.

I know that I am extremely inspired by this incredible lady and I hope you are too!

If you would like to work with Jenna you can head over and find her at her website and even join her for a workshop here

Connect and send Jenna your beautiful words of kindness through her instagram @loveludie

004 – Binge Eating to Boss Girling with Lucy Brennan

Lucy Brennan is the founder and directer of Luce Fit Australia. In this inspiring episode we discuss overcoming binge eating, anxiety, competing in fitness competitions, founding a successful business and cultivating self love. Have your pens ready because this episode is full of amazing and helpful tips!

Welcome back for another episode of the Plant Based Body Podcast! 🙂


This episode is truly wonderful and heart warming.

My conversation with Lucy is full of empowering messages and inspiring ways to help improve our relationship with food and our bodies.


In this episode Lucy takes us through her early life and into high school. We talk about where she headed after school and her experience with University and moving to Melbourne.

It was there she blossomed as a PT and worked the usual AM and PM fitness professional grind.

We talk about the positives but also the struggles of competing in fitness competitions and how this ultimately effected Lucy’s body image.

However, Melbourne was not for Luce and she ventured overseas where she really discovered her drive and purpose.


Upon her return Lucy knew exactly what she wanted to do… to create an all female gym that would empower women in her community to get their bodies moving and to help improve their relationship with their bodie’s.

This is where Luce Fit Aus was born!


In this podcast we explore mindfulness, self love, building a business, competing,  anxiety, over coming binge eating and poor self image and so many more precious goodies!

I hope you guys enjoy this episode as much as I did and fall in love with Lucy’s ethos and passion!


She is a wonderful inspiration for all girls out there wanting to make something of themselves and build their own business; and she proves that not everyone needs to go to University to be successful!

Luce Fit Aus is a warm and nurturing womens gym in Geelong, and it’s community continues to grow every day!
