Katherine McSwain is launching a new career as owner of a clothing store in Lexington after she lost her job in corporate finance because of the coronavirus pandemic.

She moved from Atlanta to Lexington to open Clover Boutique, a women’s and men’s apparel and accessory store at 14 W. Washington St. Her daughter, Maggie, is a sophomore at Washington and Lee University.

Wendy Orrison, owner of Center of Gravity Studio, said she believes competition will inspire her to be the best pilates option in town.

“I swear I did not come here to chase my child,” McSwain said. “It’s such an adorable town and it’s small and it’s somewhere of interest to me. And I found the most amazing place in town. I’m so lucky.”
