Having started off her athletics career as a high jumper with a PB of 1.88m she soon switched to the 400mm where she made rapid progression. In 2002, the Scot won individual medals at the Commonwealth Games and European Championships over 400m, and was fourth in the World Cup, setting a lifetime best of 50.82. The following season she enhanced her reputation as being a championship performer by reaching the final at the World Championships in Paris, placing seventh.

After reaching the semi-finals at the 2004 Olympic Games, she decided to switch to the 400m hurdles but despite having the potential to be a world-class exponent at that discipline, the switch did not fully materialise but he did win a Commonwealth bronze medal, setting a lifetime best of 55.25. McConnell still remained an invaluable member of the British 4x400m, greatly contributing to successive bronze medal winning performances at the World Championships but she was not fit for the Olympic Games 4x400m relay in Beijing, having to withdraw through injury.

2009 started off well for her, but injury curtailed her performances and although a member of the 4x400m relay squad at the World Championships it was not unil her last race of the season in the Shanghai Grand Prix that she managed to run somewhere near her potential with a season's best of 51.45. 2010 started brightly with a convincing win in the European Championships Trials at Birmingham, but a below-par run in the championships in Barcelona where she finished in fourth place in her heat and was also just outside of the medals at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

She studied PE and Sports Science at Loughborough.
