With a broad athletic background, Deb’s career blossomed during high school where she attended Palmer Prep High School. During high school she lettered in four sports during each of her four years. She has since been inducted into the Palmer Trinity Hall of Fame.
After graduation Deb went on to play both volleyball and softball at the division 1 level at F.I.U. It was while at FIU that Deb decided to focus on a future involved in athletics.
After college Deb worked as an assistant Volleyball Coach at FIU before going on to MDC where she was the aquatics manager.
Deb first started at Coral Reef in 1998 where she began as a coach. She has coached Swimming, Volleyball, Basketball, and Softball before moving into administrative duties as an Assistant Director of Athletics, and then the Athletic Business Manager. It was in 2008 when Ms. Margolis was asked to step into the Director of Athletics position, which she has held ever since.
Since Ms. Margolis’s tenure began Coral Reef has had multiple teams earning state final four appearances and state championships. We are proud to continue to be a top overall athletic program in MDCPS, earning the top honors repeatedly.
