Elegant and soft spoken, Lumaava (Ava) has a smile that radiates friendliness and warmth. Although now living in Palisi, Ava is from the villages of Sapapalii and Faga on the big island of Savaii.

On being asked to model for Janet’s Love Pacific photo shoot, Ava was proud that much of the organic virgin coconut oil used in Love Pacific body care products originates from her home Island of Savaii.
