Local Businesswoman Changes Focus To Support Survivors Of Child Sexual Abuse

A St. John’s businesswoman is closing her business to pursue her passion for an organization she founded in support of adult survivors of child sexual abuse.

Bev Moore-Davis is closing August & Lotta Stockholm at the end of the season to devote her time to Miles for Smiles.

She says while it’s a difficult decision, it’s right for her.

She says while she enjoys running the boutique, after years of burning the candle at both ends, she decided to focus her energies on making a difference.
