Lee Woodruff

As co-author of the best-selling In an Instant, Lee Woodruff garnered critical acclaim for the compelling and humorous chronicle of her family’s journey to recovery following her husband Bob’s roadside bomb injury in Iraq. Appearing together on national television and radio since the February 2007 publication of their book, the couple has helped put a face on the serious issue of traumatic brain injury among returning post-9/11 veterans, as well as the millions of Americans who live with this often invisible, but life-changing affliction.

Inspired by their experience, they founded the Bob Woodruff Foundation to give injured veterans access to the high level of support and resources they deserve, for as long as they need it. To date, the foundation has invested more than $42 million in programs nationwide to create long-lasting, positive outcomes for our nation’s impacted veterans, service members and their families.

Woodruff has been a contributing reporter for “CBS This Morning” and “Good Morning America.” A freelance writer, Woodruff has penned numerous magazine articles about her family and parenting and has written several best-selling books.  She ran her own marketing consulting business for 16 years after leaving the PR agency world in New York, Washington DC and San Francisco.

Woodruff is the mother of four children and currently lives in Westchester County, New York, with her husband.
