She was born July 11, 1966, in Baltimore, Md., and moved to Tampa, Fla., as a child. She graduated from Tampa Preparatory School before attending Princeton, where she majored in economics. Margot earned an MBA from the Wharton School of Business in 1994. She had a successful career as a management consultant while enjoying and contributing to the cultural life of New York City, where she lived for many years.
Margot was a member of Princeton Inn College/Forbes College, where she was affectionately known as “THE dorm room lottery expert.” She lived in Dodd Hall as an upperclassman and enjoyed the eating club and social scene at Charter Club.
Margot celebrated with fellow Tigers at Princeton events. She was always enthusiastically attired in orange and black and came back to Old Nassau many times — for Reunions, the first She Roars conference in 2011, and the L’Chaim conference celebrating 100 years of Jewish life at Princeton.
Margot had a beautiful voice. It was filled with sweetness, sincerity, and was punctuated by a golden laughter that was unexpected, sometimes uncontrollable, and always delightfully infectious. Her devotion to family and friends, unfailing sense of humor, lively curiosity, and penetrating intellect will be sorely missed.
Margot is survived by her mother, Dr. Shirley Borkowf, her extended family, and many dear friends.
