Eidenberg is a native Chicagoan and a graduate of Chicago public schools. Following her graduation from Lane Tech High School, she attended Columbia College Chicago earning her B.A. in Marketing Communications in 2004.
Professionally, Eidenberg has worked in the insurance industry and in retail and marketing. She continued to work while attending school to earn a Master's of Arts Management in small business entrepreneurship from Columbia College Chicago in 2009.

Eidenberg listed the following issues on her campaign website:
- Women's rights: "I’ll fight every single day to make sure that women get the same protection under the law, the same opportunities, the same honest pay for the same honest work - that everyone enjoys."
- Abortion: "I believe in a woman’s right to choose. I believe in a woman’s right to control our own reproductive system, and access to fertility treatment."
- Healthcare: "[I am] a strong supporter of the Affordable Care Act...I will fight to protect small business owners from the unintended negative impacts of legislation like ACA. For example, the calculation currently used to verify company size exposes too many small business owners to severe penalties."
- Jobs: "I will fight to attract more good companies to the greater ChicagoLand area, and I will fight to create a pro-business environment that will directly result in more jobs, and stronger families."
- Small businesses: "We need to work together to shop small business and create more advantageous tax options for small business owners."
- Social Security: "Our seniors worked their entire lives investing in Social Security, and they deserve to get back every dollar they paid in... As our next member of Congress I’ll fight any politician who tries to cut those benefits, or break that promise."
- National budget: "As a fiscal conservative, I believe it’s time we had a common-sense discussion about how to bridge the financial gap without violating our most precious values."
