In her home community of Staten Island, N.Y., Doreen Zayer has earned a well-deserved reputation for both philanthropic generosity and world-class business prowess. Doreen, a former Peace Corps volunteer, launched her enterprise, Relax On Cloud Nine, in 1995 as a dollara- minute massage store in the Staten Island Mall. The modest venture has since grown into one of the largest and most respected businesses of its kind in the New York metropolitan area. It has been highlighted in Time Out New York magazine as “homey, peaceful and unlike anything you can experience in Manhattan.” Concurrent with the growth of her enterprise, Doreen has continually supported her community, helping to raise money for local schools, houses of worship, and charitable and cultural foundations, such as Eden II, an organization that assists children with autism and their families; the Staten Island Zoo, and the Historic Richmond Town village and museum complex on Staten Island. In 1997, just two years after starting her business, Doreen purchased a magnificent Victorian residence within the Staten Island neighborhood of West Brighton. A year later, following extensive renovations and remodeling of the historic 1800s structure, she relocated Relax On Cloud Nine to its new luxurious home. Upon arrival, Doreen’s massage therapy endeavor embraced a wide range of additional top-notch services, transforming Relax On Cloud Nine into one of the most alluring and highly-touted day spas in New York City. Today’s visitors to Relax On Cloud Nine can opt for any number of pampering and wellness-inspired spa services, ranging from massages, facials, body scrubs and acupuncture to Vichy showers, sauna or steam showers, mud/ seaweed wraps and air-brush tanning, to name just a few. Over the years, Doreen has been recognized numerous times for her entrepreneurial accomplishments and community commitment, including such honors as: The Staten Island Chamber of Commerce’s Louis R. Miller Business Leadership Award (2010); American Express Open’s Make Mine a $Million Business Award (2006); New York State Small Business Hall of Fame “Extraordinary Entrepreneurial Spirit” Award (2006); Small Business Development Center Hall of Fame (2005); Outstanding Women-Owned Small Business, presented by the Small Business Development Center at the College of Staten Island, City University of New York (2004).
