In 1997 she joined Masque National Institute for Performing Arts where she was awarded Student of the Year.

She has been involved in professional performances since 1993. Rebecca has performed in pantomimes, Christmas concerts and the NSW Premiers Concert at The Sydney Entertainment Centre in 1994.
Credits also include entertainment for the Sydney Blues Baseball team 1994-1995 and 1995-1996 season, and for the Parramatta Rugby League, Eastern Suburbs Rugby League, Western Suburb Rugby League, Bulldogs Rugby League and the Sydney Royal Easter Show.

She says her most exciting performance, however, would have to be at Disneyland, California. In 1996 and 1997 Rebecca was given the opportunity to perform on stage at Disneyland with the Australian College of Entertainment.

Rebecca was nominated for 'Most Popular New Talent' at the 1999 TV WEEK Logie Awards, having only been on screen at that time since October 1998. She was thrilled to be nominated in the category along with her co-star Kimberley Cooper who won the award.

From 2000-2004, Hewitt was involved with her on-screen boyfriend, Beau Brady. Shortly after their separation, she began dating Australian tennis player and long-time friend Lleyton Hewitt. After six weeks of dating, they announced that they were engaged.

The couple were married on 21 July 2005. The event was shrouded in secrecy, with reports of guests being required to sign confidentiality agreements. Despite this, they chose very public venues for the wedding (Sydney Opera House) and reception (Taronga Zoo). As a result, it was given much media attention.

On 5 May 2005, the Hewitts announced that Bec was pregnant, and by coincidence, Hayley Lawson, Cartwright's Home & Away character, was also pregnant. On 29 November 2005, she gave birth to a daughter, Mia Rebecca Hewitt, at Sydney's Royal North Shore Hospital.
