History Trust of South Australia Manager Kristy Rebbeck shows us a few of her home favourites.

Age: 43

Worklife: Senior manager, marketing and public programs at the History Trust of South Australia

Career highlights/best known for …

I worked for many years as the marketing manager at State Theatre Company. A highlight was doing a photoshoot with the amazing Miriam Margolyes – famed actor and troublemaker. She was performing with us at the time and we met her at an amazing boathouse in Goolwa where she was staying. She was so delightful, very cheeky and sharply funny. Somehow I ended up in her kitchen cooking her scrambled eggs before taking her to the local supermarket. She delighted in telling every child she saw that she was indeed the lady from Harry Potter.
