Margulies, the youngest of three sisters, was born in Spring Valley, New York. Her mother, Francesca (née Gardner), was a ballet dancer and eurythmy teacher, and her father, Paul Margulies, was a writer who wrote the Alka-Seltzer jingle "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is". Her parents are Jewish, descended from immigrants from Austria, Hungary, and Romania. The family lived in Israel for a time before Margulies was born, before moving back to the Upper West Side of New York City.
