After earning a Harvard MBA and working in business development with Leo Burnett and then Coca Cola, Tombaugh joined Tauck in May 2001 never suspecting, of course, what a watershed year it would turn out to be for travel. For a young professional, it was trial by fire.
As her career with Tauck was progressing, Tombaugh’s family life was also evolving. Married in 1999, she had her first child in 2003, the year that Bridges went into operation. In 2006, her second child was born. A couple of years later, she and her husband decided to try for one more child, and in 2009 their wishes were granted, and then some.
“We went for three and we got four,” she said. “We had twins.”
Fortunately for Tombaugh, she works at a company that highly values family and supports its employees in their personal aspirations beyond the office.
Today, Jennifer’s oldest child, Matthew, is 15. The second, Katherine, is 12. And the twins, Christopher and Alexandra, are 9.
And in case you were wondering, that’s it. Four is enough.
Let's have fun! (??)
