Margaret Carlin

Contact Margaret

Margaret is passionate about designing and developing shared spaces that anchor communities. This was instilled during her upbringing in Alabama, where she witnessed just how important these places were to people’s mental and physical health (no matter their background). On projects, Margaret is dedicated to helping her team succeed – and she is equally happy to jump into hyper-technical problem solving or step back to wrestle with big, conceptual questions.


Margaret joined SE Group in 2022 with experience in solving social and environmental problems through design.  Margaret has a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design with a minor in Philanthropy and Non-Profit Studies and a Master of Landscape Architecture from Auburn University. During her capstone at Auburn, Margaret led a design process that reimagined an old mill site outside of Auburn as a multi-use recreational and camping facility.

Outside the office

Margaret grew up on the Alabama coast, where she spent summers on the water, fishing and making the most of the coastline. Family is a big part of her life and she relishes any time with them, whether that is taking in Mardi Gras or cheering on Auburn football! Margaret recently moved to Burlington, Vermont and she is excited to enjoy all that winter has to offer (or, to keep learning to crochet while it’s below freezing).
