Zoya and Michael Reyzis
Zoya Reyzis fills many roles: Pianist. Wife. Mother. Grandmother. Patron of the arts. Raconteur. She is also a Ukrainian immigrant who made good as a businesswoman. And she has the stories to prove it. A classically trained pianist whose musical education began at the age of 7 in the former Soviet Union, she put her music career on hold after immigrating to Cleveland in 1978. From 1986 to 1996, she worked as a nail technician at Zoya, the salon in Beachwood that she opened with her chemist husband, Michael.“We were marriage counselors, psychiatrists, lawyers and best friends with these women,” Zoya said.
