Greenwood was raised in Bolton, Lancashire, where she attended Canon Slade School before going up to St. Catharine's College, Cambridge. She moved to Southwell in Nottinghamshire in 1999. She worked in Nottingham for the public sector trade union, UNISON for 17 years prior to 2010.
Greenwood was selected as the Labour Party candidate for the 2010 general election after the incumbent Labour MP, Alan Simpson, announced in 2007 that he would not stand for re-election. She was elected with 37.3% of the vote; a majority of 4.4% over her closest rival.
Following the election of Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of the Labour Party, on 14 September 2015 she was named as the Shadow Secretary of State for Transport. Following the Brexit referendum, Greenwood resigned, among with dozens of her colleagues, in protest against what she saw as Jeremy Corbyn's weak leadership. Greenwood is a member of the Labour Friends of Israel.
