She grew up in Indiana, and her mom used to be a cheerleader for the Indiana Hoosiers. Margo attended Noblesville High School in Noblesville, Indiana, where she graduated in the top 7% of her class, finishing with a GPA over 4.0. She was named Homecoming Queen and was a member of the Spanish Club.

Margo McAuley transferred, however, to Indiana University. Margo said, “I never really looked at IU that much. Really, I just X’ed out most of the schools in the United States because I wanted to go somewhere in the south and study marine biology.” A foot injury during McAuley’s second season in Florida sidelined her, and she considered coming back home. After she had foot surgery, she felt it was right to come back to Indiana. “I was still on the team, but I couldn’t practice, couldn’t travel. I realized it’s not where I was supposed to be anymore” (idsnews.com).
In college, she was a member of the Alpha Phi sorority, and she described herself as witty, driven, intelligent, and a closet poet (rightentertainment.com).
After graduation, Margo McAuley became an Axe girl. She said, “Being an Axe girl is a great opportunity for me. I am pursuing a career in sports broadcasting, so I love the opportunity to be on camera.”
Soccer is her favorite sport because “it is played all across the world. While I was shooting this commercial in Turkey I got a chance to talk to people about soccer. I love that people from completely different cultures can meet and have a passionate conversation about a sport both people love. The history and passion behind the sport, especially overseas, is astounding. I’ve been in love with soccer since I was six years old, it was my first love.”
Margo McAuley lives in Los Angeles.
