Satchwell started acting in 1994 when a casting agent suggested she model in a few adverts. She also appeared in the ABC's Musical Harriet. After she had completed work on an advertisement for Just Jeans, a make-up artist advised Satchwell to get an agent.

Satchwell's five-year relationship with actor Matthew Newton ended in 2006. Newton was charged with four offences including common assault, intimidation and assault occasioning actual bodily harm against Satchwell. Three of the charges were withdrawn by prosecutors, Newton pleading guilty on the remaining charge of common assault.
