Meredith Harold, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of communication sciences and disorders. She worked as a school-based speech language pathologist and operated a Kansas City private practice before coming to Rockhurst University.

Harold teaches a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses, including Speech Sound Disorders, Neuroscience and research courses.

Her service and scholarship are primarily in the field of implementation science. She focuses on closing the gap between her field's scientists and practicing clinicians for the purpose of enhancing patient care and outcomes. This takes the form of working to improve graduate-level research training and continuing education for practicing clinicians.
