She is most recognized for writing and directing Songcatcher (2000) and The Ballad of Little Jo (1993). She also directed an adaptation of Jim Thompson's The Kill-Off starring an ensemble cast that includes Cathy Haase and the film debut of Jorja Fox.
Greenwald has also directed a number of television films as well as directing episodes of The Adventures of Pete & Pete, The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo and Wildfire. According to film scholar Gwendolyn Audrey Foster, Greenwald's "sense of macabre humor" was apparent in her 1989 film The Kill-Off, which Foster described as a "well-acted adaptation of a hard-boiled novel" about a "bedridden, evil gossip."
She is married to composer and musician David Mansfield who scored and composed the music for two of her films. They have two children Maisie Mansfield-Greenwald (born 1997) and Lulu Mansfield-Greenwald (born 2000).
