Amy Bartell

Amy started skating in Great Falls, MT when she was 5 years old.  She comes from a long line of skaters, her Mom and Aunt both coach skating and her uncle was a hockey player.  Amy is so excited to be back in Montana and be able to give back to the skating community that started it all for her family.  She started coaching in 1994 and is a registered U.S. Figure Skating instructor.  Amy is a Gold medalist in Freestyle, 6th Figure test, and Pre-Gold Dance.  She has 10 years competitive skating experience and was a Regional and Sectional competitor.
