Lee Woodruff

Lee Woodruff is a best-selling author, public speaker and journalist. She became an advocate for injured veterans when her husband, Bob, was injured by a roadside bomb while covering the Iraq war for ABC News.

Inspired by their family’s experience of injury and recovery, they founded the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) to ensure our post-911 veterans have access to the highest levels of support and resources when they transition back to the homefront. To date, the foundation has invested nearly $70 million to find, fund, and shape programs helping veterans, service members, and their families nationwide.

Woodruff has been a contributing reporter for “CBS This Morning” and “Good Morning America.” She’s written numerous magazine articles and several best-selling books. She currently runs a media training and speaking business, working with clients around the globe.
