New editor, writer to join Up North Voice staff

ROSCOMMON – Alicia Noragon of Houghton Lake has been named copy editor of Up North Voice and UpNorthVoice.com effective Oct. 21

Noragon, who is originally from Harbor Springs, moved to Roscommon County with her significant other, Wayne, and her two sons about 2.5 years ago.

Alicia’s immediate role will be to edit copy and photos from Roscommon, Crawford, Ogemaw, Oscoda and Iosco counties. With the assistance of several writers from across the region, including the new Crawford County Writer Nicole Mygrants, she will oversee story and video development. Noragon will also manage the social media component of the organization.

Separately, Noragon works part time as a probation officer in Crawford County.

“I love what I do in the criminal justice field,” Alicia said. “But I’ve always had a passion for writing. I’m excited about this new position and looking forward to getting to know the people in our coverage communities.”

Noragon can be reached at alicia@upnorthvoice.com.

Mygrants is a homeschool mom, entrepreneur and holistic health advocate. She owns and manages “The Gift A Wellness Community,” and partners with her husband at Northstar Autowash, leads an international dōTERRA team, Coordinates for Gaylord MOPS, and spends most of her time with her two rambunctious children.

When she isn’t teaching, Nicole is always a student, currently immersed in yoga teacher training certification as well as completing her bachelor degree with specialization in wellness and Integrative Health. Nicole is most often found talking to someone- everywhere she goes- and is truly a lover of people and sharing good conversation.

Nicole enjoys camping, hiking, kayaking, acoustic music, building other’s strengths, snuggling her pet bobcat and dancing in the kitchen. A Michigan native, her heart is rooted to our northern waters, forests, people and stories.

“I believe words have power to bring joy and awareness,” she said. “I try to be real with folks and authentically share this journey we are all on together.
