Whereas many business owners are solely in business for the money, for
Shairon Taylor (Now Mrs. Shairon Parks), it’s about much more. It’s ministry.
Affectionately known as “The Oily Editor” to many, her uniquely designed
business allows her to operate in her God-given passion: the art of refinement.
Whether she’s working diligently to perfect manuscripts through her editing and
proofreading services, or helping clientele incorporate natural protocols into their
daily regimen using doTERRA essential oils, Shairon strategically removes impurities
or unwanted elements from everything she puts her hands to.
While some spend a lifetime trying to unlock the gifts within, she is committed
to maximizing her gifts on this side of heaven. Realizing her love for the journalistic
arts in both middle school and high school, Shairon wasn’t just an avid reader of
literary fiction. Shairon jumped full speed ahead on the creative writing train,
submitting prose and poetry to her high school magazine for publication. During her
studies at Wayne State University, which is where she earned her B.A. in Journalism
from, she was also fortunate to intern at WJBK Fox 2 News and WDRJ AM 1440 radio,
where she worked for ten years. Even though many are familiar with her work behind
the scenes, she’s even had the esteemed honor to complete voiceover work for various
radio broadcasts and commercials.
It was her gift of both writing and editing that led to SLT Inspirations, LLC, where she
incorporates her love for editing, essential oils and natural health under the umbrella of
refinement. When her eldest sister became terminally ill, she knew she had no choice but
to seek a natural route. Despite her sister’s passing in 2014, Shairon remains devoted to being a wellness
advocate, offering clientele new hope and an educated outlook on their health and lifestyle. A doTERRA Wellness Advocate for more than two years, she shares the life-enhancing benefits of therapeutic-grade essential oils with the world—which is proof that she’s more than earned her name as “The Oily Editor.”
When she’s not enhancing others’ manuscripts, she’s penning her own literary masterpieces, including her debut book,
Gathering the Fragments, which was released in January 2019. With a multifaceted mission to inspire, refine and polish, you can find her “slangin' both red ink and essential oils” on any given day.
