McNab received her first notable acting role in 1991 when she appeared as a Girl Scout selling cookies in The Addams Family. She played a more prominent role in the 1993 sequel Addams Family Values, as snobby camper Amanda Buckman. In 1997, McNab was cast in a recurring role on The WB TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

After a one-off guest role in season two, she became a recurring guest at the start of the show's final season, which aired from 2003 to 2004, and then a series regular midway through.

McNab went on to guest star in shows including Psych and Supernatural. In 2007, she appeared in a lead role in the slasher movie Hatchet, directed by Adam Green. She briefly appeared in the 2010 sequel Hatchet 2, and afterward starred in a number of direct-to-DVD horror movies such as Dark Reel and Thirst, as well as the TV-movie Vipers alongside Tara Reid.
