ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Leigh Anne Tuohy is the matriarch of the Tuohy family—made famous in Michael Lewis’ bestselling novel The Blind Side. The book was later made into a blockbuster movie, with Sandra Bullock portraying Tuohy, that earned over $300 million—and became the topgrossing openingweekend sports movie in history.

Today, Mrs. Tuohy is the founder and owner of Flair I, an interior design firm. She has been featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and designed for such highprofile clients as Peyton Manning, Scottie Pippen, OJ Mayo, and Isaac Bruce.

As a founding member of Grace Evangelical Church, Mrs. Tuohy is also active in numerous community and faithbased organizations. In partnership with her husband, Sean, Mrs. Tuohy founded the Making it Happen Foundation, dedicated to improving standards of living for all deserving but underserved youth.

She is also a renowned motivational speaker—having appeared on CNN and delivered lectures to diverse audiences, from religious to corporate groups. She is noted for her continued commitment to helping the less fortunate—and bringing out the same passion for public service in others.
