She has been performing on stage since she was seven years old, and she began her training as a classical music and theatre performer at an early age. 

As a teenager, McCormack studied acting at the Lyric School of Acting in Vancouver before going to university in England. There, she studied literature at Herstmonceux International Study Centre and then at the University of British Columbia. 

'The Neddeaus of Duqesne Island'

McCormack appeared in the 2017 CBC digital series, The Neddeaus of Duqesne Island. She plays the role of Eloida, who torments her older mainland-dreaming brother Elmer (played by series creator and writer Aaron Schroeder), along with her twin sister Elène (played by Caitlin Driscoll.) 

The Neddeaus of Duqesne Island is a documentary from the 1970s about a strange family living on the island in Northern Ontario. The Neddeaus and their ancestors have lived hidden on Duqesne Island for over a hundred years, speaking an arcane language and practicing a forgotten faith, with a history rooted in violence and mutiny.

The ten-part film follows adolescent Elmer Neddeau as he goes through his devout parents' strict island rules, and his twin sisters' devilish gimmicks, all while dreaming of the mainland. 

'Sugar Daddy'

Sugar Daddy, released in 2020, is a female-driven project with a script written by McCormack. She portrays Darren, a young talented musician who aspires to make music like no one else, but she's bankrupt.

The movie is directed by Wendy Morgan and produced by Lauren Grant, Lori Lozinski, and McCormack herself. Other casts of the film include Colm Feore as Gordon, Amanda Brugel as Nancy, Ishan Davé as Pater, Aaron Ashmore as Angus, and Tiio Horn as Jenny. 

Moreover, McCormack received positive reviews from the critics for her role as Darren and for writing the movie and also won the 'The One to Watch' award. 

In an interview with Seventh Row in 2021, McCormack mentioned she was broke and tired of being commodified and disrespected in her many part-time jobs, commercial auditions, and mediocre acting auditions. Moreover, she said that writing Sugar Daddy was the only way out. So she shut herself away in her studio apartment for three months, writing the film and quitting all of her jobs.
