Meshon Smith has been a licensed nail technician for 17 years and has spent a majority of her career working at Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa, an upscale salon and spa in Baltimore, Maryland. She started at Red Door Spa as nail technician, but was quickly promoted to lead nail technician/supervisor. For over eight years, she has been an in-house nail trainer for Red Door Spa’s throughout Maryland and Washington D.C.
Meshon has also participated in a number of nail competitions, which contributes to her ability to lead and inspire those she works with. As for becoming an expert educator for Artistic Nail Design, love of the craft is what drew Meshon to become an educator, as she said, “If you love what you do, it is not work.” Also, reconnecting with the creativity of nail art also encouraged Meshon to become an Expert Educator.
Additionally, Meshon has also worked with several high-profile clients in both Maryland and Washington D.C. She has also encouraged future nail technicians through community service efforts, and has recently received an award of appreciation from Patterson High School for her work with nail technician students.
