Margot Kramer Want

Board Member

Margot “Marli” Want moved to New Orleans in 2006 to attend law school at Tulane University. She and her husband fell in love with the city, especially its vibrant neighborhoods and culture.

Marli is Associate General Counsel at PosiGen, a residential solar company founded in New Orleans. She is proud to be part of a movement that is reducing reliance on fossil fuels while saving people money. Before joining PosiGen, Marli spent four years as an Associate at the law firm of Adams and Reese and a year as law clerk to the Honorable Martin L.C. Feldman for the Federal District Court in the Eastern District of Louisiana . Marli continues to support her alma mater by serving on the Board of Advisory Editors for the Tulane Law Review.

Marli was drawn to the Urban Conservancy because of its Stay Local initiative– strong local economies are an important foundation to a strong community. But she is most proud of the Urban Conservancy for its role in facilitating open and inclusive dialog about issues facing our urban built environment, from local businesses, to green spaces to living with water.

Marli, her husband, their two daughters and dog live in Gentilly. They love the neighborhood’s family feel and enjoy being part of the area’s revitalization.
