Abeni Crooms
Plant Procurement Specialist + Project Assistant

Between point A and point B, there’s Abeni. Shipping, coordinating, liaising, list-making—let’s just put a word on it: Abeni-ing. As the first point of contact at LWLA, we rely on Abeni daily (if not hourly) to get people, projects and plants in the right place.

With years of experience as a conference planner, Abeni’s logistical prowess for developing timelines, frameworks and budgets followed her from the sidewalks to the meadows. But her day-to-day knack for big-tent organization first bloomed off the clock: as a one-time scuba dive master, problem solving always came naturally. (Try getting to 130 feet below sea level without a good plan in place.)
