Michael Verde - TCL

Michael holds two master’s degrees: an MA in literary studies from the University of Iowa, and a MA in theology from the University of Durham, England, where he graduated at the top of his international class. At Lamar University, where he began his teaching career, he was named Teacher of the Year in his third year of teaching–the youngest teacher to ever receive that recognition at the university. He taught English for ten years before founding Memory Bridge. Currently, he is completing his PhD at Indiana University, focusing on empathetic communication and literature and religion.

Michael Verde founded Memory Bridge in 2003 for the purpose of ending the emotional isolation of people with dementia. To date, Memory Bridge’s multiple-award winning educational programs, hosted on three continents, have connected over 8,500 people with and without dementia in one-to-one relationships. In 2008, Michael produced the PBS Documentary There Is a Bridge.

Michael presents across the world on the subjects of literature, world religions, and communicating with people with dementia.
