McCreary grew up in Antioch, a small town in northern California. Her mother, actress Sharon Rich, left the entertainment industry to raise the family.

McCreary graduated from UCLA with a degree in Computer Science. While still in college, she co-founded CompuLaw, a computer software company that continues to thrive.

McCreary's appreciation for the stage play "Bopha!" inspired her to go into motion picture production. Actor Morgan Freeman was signed to direct the film. Later, Freeman became McCreary's mentor and eventually the pair partnered in the formation of Revelations Entertainment in 1996. McCreary holds the position of CEO at Revelations, overseeing all facets of Revelations’ day-to-day operation including film production as well as business and finance.

Revelations' recently acquired rights to the book Playing the Enemy by John Carlin and have developed it into a script with screenwriter Tony Peckham.

McCreary's additional producer credits include Mimi Leder's Thick as Thieves with Antonio Banderas and Maiden Heist starring Christopher Walken, William H. Macy, Marcia Gay Harden and Morgan Freeman. Revelations also co-produced Along Came a Spider for Paramount Pictures.

In July 2005, Revelations Entertainment teamed with Intel to form a new digital entertainment company, ClickStar. ClickStar officially launched their site on December 15, 2006, where it was the first website to legally make a movie (Revelation's 10 Items or Less) available for download while it was still in theaters. Former OpenTV executive James Ackerman is CEO. McCreary was responsible for establishing Revelations' close alliance with Intel seven years ago.
