Meet the Panelist: 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 Iraq war veterans, as well as the millions of Americans who live with this often invisible, but life-changing affliction.
They have founded the Bob Woodruff Foundation to assist wounded service members and their families receive the long-term care that they need and help them successfully reintegrate into their communities.
Woodruff is a contributing reporter for “CBS This Morning,” reporting on a variety of home, current events and family related topics. Her best-selling book Perfectly Imperfect – A Life in Progress, was followed by her first novel in September, Those We Love Most, which became a New York Times best-seller.
A freelance writer, Woodruff has penned numerous personal articles about her family and parenting that have run in such high-profile magazines as Ladies Home Journal, Real Simple, Redbook, Country Living and Parade.
In addition to freelance writing, Woodruff ran her own public relations and marketing consulting business for 16 years. Before that, she was senior vice president of public relations firm Porter Novelli.
At present, Woodruff lives in Westchester County, New York, with her husband and four children.
