As I’m sure most working mothers out there know, it’s not easy trying to juggle your career while taking care of the kids at home, and it’s especially not easy when you work with a bunch of clowns (I see you raising your hand!). When it comes to clowns though and the juggling act called life, Nicole Feld knows a thing or two about what it takes to get the job done and not lose your balance in the meantime, too.
As one of the driving forces behind the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey’s circus acts, the mother-of-one works in an unusual, fun and mostly male driven industry where anything can happen at anytime, literally.

As the Executive Vice President and Producer of Field Entertainment, Inc., Nicole was born into the family business and at an early age she embarked on an ambitious road show throughout the company, immersing herself in every aspect of the business from creative and production to sales and marketing.
