Brandi Beck-Scott
Instructor, Woodward, Oklahoma

     Brandi Beck-Scott lives in Woodward, OK and has loved being in and around the water from an early age, learning to swim at the age of three. Brandi spent a lot of time in the summer at the pool and going to the lake. Brandi is a certified SCUBA diver and a lifeguard. 

     In 2021 Brandi became the proud mom of a little boy and saw his natural love for the water. She wanted to ensure that he knew how to respond if he should find himself in a potentially dangerous situation. When he turned 7 months old Brandi enrolled him in survival swimming lessons with Mrs. Tami. After seeing how much he learned in just a few weeks, she knew she had made the right decision. When Tami approached Brandi about teaching lessons in Woodward, Brandi jumped at the opportunity. 

     In September 2023 Brandi spent six weeks of intense hands-on training with Judy Heumann, the owner and founder of Infant Aquatics. The training included over100 hours of in and out of water skills with focus on psychology, physiology, and child development, as well as survival swim lesson techniques.

     Brandi's goal is to teach children the skills to rescue themselves and to develop confident swimmers that respect the water. Brandi will be teaching exclusively in Woodward, OK, and will teach refreshers, survival swimming lessons, stroke lessons and group lessons
