Grassroots Leadership: NG Turf’s Leading Ladies
NG Turf, the preferred sod farm for premium grass in the southeast, is not just a company; it’s a family story. At its helm are many important women who are proving that leadership has no gender in the world of home improvement. Merett Alexander and Natalie Howard, daughters of NG Turf’s founder and CEO Aaron McWhorter, are carving their own path in the industry, bringing a unique blend of dedication, innovation, and commitment to the family business.
Merett Alexander, NG Turf’s Vice President of Golf Course Sales, is a trailblazer in every sense of the word. Launching the golf course segment for the company, Merett has been instrumental in not just diversifying the business, but also proving its versatility in different terrains. Her vision is to not only maintain NG Turf’s reputation for quality but also to expand the horizons of the company’s influence within the golfing world. Her ability to liaise with golf course architects, superintendents, and builders while maintaining NG Turf’s high standards of excellence is a testament to her remarkable leadership.
Meanwhile, Natalie Howard, as the Vice President of Business Administration, serves as the vital support pillar for both the operations and growth of NG Turf. Natalie joined the NG Turf family in 2007, and her wealth of experience is evident. Her role may seem daunting, as she oversees vital aspects of the business, from sales and accounts receivable, purchasing of farm supplies, to human resources and event planning.
Merett and Natalie, embody the essence of NG Turf as a family-owned and operated business. They bring to life the
business’s ethos, showing that being family-owned is more than just a label, but a testament to dedication, innovation, and deeply rooted values. This family bond, combined with their hard work, is the cornerstone of their success.
They bring to life the business’s ethos, showing that being family-owned is more than just a label, but a testament to dedication, innovation, and deeply rooted values.
Their journey is not only a beacon of inspiration for other women in the turf industry, but also a testament to the strength of family enterprises. Merett Alexander and Natalie Howard exemplify ‘grassroots leadership’, driving NG Turf forward while keeping its roots firmly grounded in family values and commitment. They illustrate that the home improvement industry, and indeed all industries, can flourish under the stewardship of a family-owned operation that prioritizes diversity, inclusion, and a strong commitment to excellence.

AYes, there are several types. One option is to use heavy, lined draperies which can provide a barrier between the window and the room to help keep the heat out. Another option is to use blinds or shades which can be adjusted to block out as much or as little sunlight as possible. One of our best options are Honeycomb shades with the duolite option.

PODCASTER • HUMANITARIAN HOST 2021 OVER 40 & FABULOUS TOP 10
By Wyndi Kappes
Fifty-year-old Adam Asher uses his wanderlust for good as the producer and host of the docuseries and podcast
“The Edge of Adventure.” Adam travels the world highlighting humanitarian endeavors across the globe, bringing his viewers, listeners and himself some much-needed hope. When not out on the road, you can find the Best Self Atlanta 2021 Over 40 & Fabulous Top 10 Winner at home in Vinings or out biking on the Silver Comet Trail.
Q: What is your favorite way to give back to your community?
Adam Asher: I make video documentaries and weekly podcasts that showcase inspiring humanitarian organizations and their efforts worldwide to care for those in desperate need. I’ve done all this because these people and these organizations inspire me. Because I admire the way they put others first. The way they treat people with dignity and care, people who might otherwise be overlooked or disregarded. I believe their work is valuable and that it should be honored. We need to hear their stories. We’re so overwhelmed by bad news these days. We need to be reminded that there is still good in the world. And that we can be a part of it.
Q: What inspired you to do this particular kind of charity work?
Adam Asher: I had the chance to do some humanitarian work when I was 15. It changed me. I didn’t know what the future held, but I knew right then that I would never be the same, and that I had to be a part of such things.
Q: What do you love most about yourself?
Adam Asher: In terms of God-given talents, I’d say I’m proud to be gifted at learning languages. Because when you speak another person’s native language, it gives you a greater appreciation for who they are.
Q: What is your most embarrassing moment, and did you learn anything from it?
Adam Asher: In my early days of radio, back when I was a teenager, we had a Sunday morning church service on the air. But I was tired from working all through the night, so I played some upbeat music in the studio to keep me awake. What I didn’t know was that some of the equipment was wired wrong, and my music went out over the air. Along with my karaoke. For the entire hour. What did I learn? Two things: 1. Every mic is a hot mic. 2. Don’t let the phone ring for an hour.
Q: What are some of your go-tos in Vinings/Smyrna?
Adam Asher: I love the Silver Comet Trail. You can often catch me out there biking. Dr. Dina Giesler at Atlanta Smiles is an amazing dentist and friend. Dr. Joe Esposito is my man for chiropractic care at Health Plus Wellness Center. Abbey Brewer for massage therapy at Marietta Yoga. instagram.com/adamasher,

DriveThru Urgent Care Health In The Fast
When it comes to getting well fast, Atlantans face a myriad of challenges. Overcrowded emergency rooms, the shortage of primary healthcare providers, urgent care facilities with limited capacity and other obstacles often get in the way of swift treatment. According to the team behind Viral Solutions, they have the cure: DriveThru Urgent Care.
Opening in August, DriveThru Urgent Care promises to usher in a new era of healthcare by treating patients with timesensitive medical needs in the comfort of their own cars
The first practice in the nation to present the concept at this scale, DriveThru Urgent Care will deliver modern, convenient and accessible urgent care medicine in a drive-through setting.
Created by the veteran ER team who developed and operated Viral Solutions (Dr. Ben Lefkove and physician assistant Ron Sanders Jr.), which tested and vaccinated millions during the COVID-19 crisis, DriveThru Urgent
DriveThru Urgent Care retools the entire process, from check-in to discharge to dispensing common medications on-site. Ef ciencies will begin as soon as a patient pulls up to the facility in their car.

Care will strive to bring radical efficiency to every aspect of quality urgent care. The plan is to offer an improved level of access that makes healthcare easy, breaking down barriers and meeting patients where they are so they can receive the timely treatment they need without delay and get better faster.
“While serving on the frontline of the pandemic, we had to think differently while serving nearly 4 million patients,” says DriveThru Urgent Care co-founder Dr. Ben Lefkove. “We not only saw the need for something like DriveThru Urgent Care, but we are now able to take the lessons we’ve learned and build a remarkably better urgent care concept amid the new normal.”
DriveThru Urgent Care retools the entire process, from check-in to discharge to dispensing common medications on-site. Efficiencies will begin as soon as a patient pulls up to the facility in their car. There are no waiting rooms, and with car-side check-in, patients are ready for their exam in just a few minutes.
The practice can treat all non-life-threatening conditions patients typically seek treatment for at urgent care locations, from abdominal pain and eye infections to sprains, minor cuts and lacerations.
DriveThru Urgent Care will put a special emphasis on treating and testing for seasonal respiratory illnesses, including flu, COVID-19, RSV and strep throat.
Providers have the ability to utilize state-of-the-art medical equipment while the patient remains in the vehicle
For more extensive examination and when handling sensitive medical issues, providers can treat patients inside the facility, which features multiple exam rooms and an X-ray machine. Patients can receive common lab tests, and the on-site lab will have results within minutes. After diagnosis, patients can get the most medications on-site without a separate trip to the pharmacy.
“Time is precious and our ultimate goal is to reimagine urgent care so patients can get better faster,” says co-founder, physician assistant Ron Sanders. “We truly believe DriveThru Urgent Care patients will experience a type of efficiency, convenience and compassion like never before.”
Viral Solutions will serve as the parent company and fold its services into DriveThru Urgent Care. The flagship DriveThru Urgent Care location will be located at 1605 Howell Mill Road NW, Atlanta. Learn more by calling 470.601.7810 or by visiting DriveThruUrgentCare.com.
