With a last name like Palmer, this free spirit was destined to make the islands her home. Half-Finnish; born in California and raised in the backwoods of Virginia, a passion for travel and culture couldn’t help but run in her blood. Craving the Aloha spirit and the waves of the ‘aina, Aino left the gnarl of the East Coast swell to serve the community of Wahiawa. She’s always down for a ukulele jam sesh, talking story over strong coffee, barefoot adventures, or to simply just yoga & chill. Passionate about igniting stoke, she hopes to impact Oahu and eventually the world with her radical love for life.
