As co-author of the New York Times 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 on national television and as keynote speakers 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 Iraq war veterans.
They have founded the Bob Woodruff Foundation to assist injured service members and their families heal from the wounds of war. To date, the non-profit foundation has raised more than $40 million and invested in grassroots organizations and programs around the country that are helping veterans reintegrate into their communities.
Woodruff has been a contributing reporter for ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “CBS This Morning.” Her best-selling book Perfectly Imperfect – A Life in Progress, was followed by her first novel “Those We Love Most,” which became a New York Times Best-Seller.
A freelance writer, Woodruff has penned numerous personal articles. She is the mother of four mostly fabulous children, an alumnus of Colgate University and an avid lover of the Adirondack region.

Whether she’s sharing wisdom about the healthcare journey and recovery, or speaking candidly about life and family, she draws on her experiences to connect with the audience. Her trademark humor and down-to- earth manner has made her a popular keynote speaker nationwide.
