Steel was born in Salt Lake City but moved to Lincoln, Nebraska and East Lyme, Connecticut before she graduated from the University of North Carolina. She lives in New York City. Steel says she became interested in journalism after writing a piece in her high school newspaper about how to be happy and grateful in the wake of 9/11; she said a janitor approached her to say her piece had brightened her day, and she knew in that moment she wanted to become a writer.
Steel worked at The Wall Street Journal for 8 years, where she shared the 2011 Gerald Loeb Award for Online Enterprise business journalism for "What They Know." She worked for two years at the Financial Times before joining The New York Times in 2014 after Brian Stelter left for CNN.
