Brendi Pierce, Instructor & Owner

My name is Brendi Pierce, and I'm excited to offer our 2nd year of private and group swimming lessons! I've been married to my college sweetheart, Matt, for 16 years, and we have two boys, Nolan and Rex. We built a pool in our backyard in 2018 and swimming quickly became our favorite activity to do as a family. Since we've put in our pool, I've had an interest in teaching others pool safety and how to swim. I'm now putting my interest into action! We are looking forward to meeting you at Waterlou Swim School!

Scarlett Helms, Instructor

Hey all you water bugs! I'm Scarlett Helms, an instructor at WaterLou Swim School. My husband, Tyler, and our two boys, Taysom and Swayde absolutely love the water! Some of our best family memories have been made at the lake or pool. I can't wait to share this experience with you and make sure the foundation of swim and safety skills are achieved! 

Krissy Shipman, Instructor 

My name is Krissy Shipman, and I am excited and looking forward to working with Brendi this summer in teaching swimming lessons.  I live in Abernathy, TX with my senior daughter Rylee White.  She will graduate from Abernathy High School in May and plans to attend South Plains in the fall.  I am a middle school ELR teacher for 7th grade at Shallowater Middle School.  I have been a teacher for 14 years now and love teaching and making a difference in the lives of our youth.  I have had the privilege of teaching swimming lessons for four years and love working with kids to learn pool safety, comfort in the water, and learning new swimming techniques.  I look forward to meeting each of you and working with your child this summer.
