Rooted in Play
Co-Founder and Vice President
Tampa, Florida
Ashli Givens is a Playworker and Speech and Language Pathologist who, along with her partner, Maggie Fuller, founded the non-profit organization Rooted in Play. After spending two decades working with children to resolve their communication difficulties, she intimately knows about children’s developmental needs and the importance of play in meeting those needs. Her experience as a homeschooling mother to three children fostered a passionate belief in the role that autonomy, community, and creativity play in a child’s learning. Ashli holds a Master of Science degree in Communication Disorders. She passionately advocates for continuous learning and lives out that value by actively participating in Playworker training, researching everything from alternative education to new skateboarding techniques, and chasing after her next running goal.
