She is a music graduate of the University of Birmingham. She taught in Martel, France for two years, then returned to England to continue postgraduate studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London. She earned the Royal Academy of Music Diploma (DipRAM), which is given only to students of high honors, and also

In the 1997-1998 season, she studied at the National Opera Studio, a workshop for promising young singers sponsored by the English National Opera, and after that continued her voice studies with Richard Smart.

She sang with the British Youth Opera as Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, First Lady in Mozart's Magic Flute, Mistress Page in Vaughan Williams' Sir John in Love, and the Casilda in Sullivan's The Gondoliers. At the Royal Academy in 1997, she sang the part of Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte, and has repeated the role with Opera Zuid.

Other roles are Angelica in Orlando, Poppea in Agrippina, Galatea in Acis and Galatea, Micaëla in Carmen and Laurette in Le Docteur Miracle.

Her debut recital at London's Wigmore Hall was in 1997. She has returned there several times, and also has sung recitals at St. John's, Smith, Square, the Frankfurt Opera House, the Edinburgh Festival, and the Klavier Festival Ruhr. She has performed with such leading accompanists as Julius Drake and Graham Johnson.

McGreevy has developed a body of credits in concert performances.
