Brittany Vise (born October 27, 1987) is a retired American Pair skater who also competed as a single skater. For most of her career, she competed with Nicholas Kole. They broke up following the 2005/2006 season. Previously, from 1998-1999, she competed with Jeremy Abbott[1]. Her older sister Tiffany Vise is also a competitive skater.

Vise & Kole were coached at different times by Irina Vorobieva[1], Tom Zakrajsek and Dalilah Sappenfield[2]. Sappenfield was also their choreographer.

Vise & Kole had a lot of success on the junior level, winning five medals on the Junior Grand Prix, including the silver medal at the 2005 Junior Grand Prix. They placed sixth at the 2004 World Junior Figure Skating Championships. They competed three times as seniors on the Grand Prix circuit. Their highest placement was 5th at the 2005 NHK Trophy. Vise & Kole announced the end of their partnership on March 6, 2006.

Vise briefly competed in ladies single skating, placing 9th in the Novice Division at the 2004 United States Championships.

Since retiring from amateur skating, Vise has appeared on Broadway in Rent and The Lion King, and teamed with Nathan Hess for Adagio skating.
