Macleod began her youth career at St Ives Hockey Club, Cambridge, and rose up the ranks to play for their first team.[2] She went on to play club hockey for St Albans, Leicester and Loughborough Students.[3]

She made her international debut in 2003. She competed for the Great Britain at the 2012 Summer Olympics, helping the team win bronze.[4][5]

In the 2016 Summer Olympics, Macleod played for the GB field hockey team again. The team won the gold medal.[8]
