Early Years and Career
Steinhauer was born on February 16, 1969 in southwestern Michigan. She is the daughter of Joel Steinhauer, who worked as a union representative for the Michigan Education Association, and Lynn Steinhauer, who is a licensed social worker.
Steinhauer attended the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York, where she studied journalism, eventually graduating with a BFA in Communication Arts in 1990. In 1989, she began working as a copy girl for The New York Times, while she was still a student at SVA.
Until 2015, Steinhauer was married to fellow Times writer Ed Wyatt; the couple have 2 daughters. Steinhauer currently lives in the American University Park neighbourhood of Washington, D.C. with her partner and Times journalist, Jonathan Weisman, along with their 4 daughters (both Steinhauer and Weisman had 2 children from a previous marriage).
Steinhauer was the daughter of an interfaith couple (her father practiced Christianity, while her mother practiced Judaism) and ultimately chose to practice Judaism. Her marriage to Ed Wyatt was performed by Rabbi Judith Lewis In New York.
Steinhauer, herself a graduate of an art school, has suggested that the need for a degree from an elite college (or a college degree at all) is overstated. She has often tweeted the work of her Times colleague and cookbook co-author, Frank Bruni, who has published a number of pieces on the subject.
