Meet Your Facilitators


HAZE SCHEPMYER is a Life-Event Transition Consultant committed to sparking powerful and unconventional conversations that empower adolescents to move from surviving to thriving as they transition to adulthood. She is an Author, Facilitator and Speaker.

After the unexpected and unnerving loss of her dream job in 2019, Haze took stock of her lived experiences then launched Grow My GRIT to elevate the importance of reframing our thoughts when it’s time to make a major transition. Specifically, she promotes shifting our thoughts to the unique strengths and resources we reliably bring to challenging situations and relationships. With these important conversations in mind, Haze pioneered the GRIT Growth Guide © which highlights opportunities for people to know, grow and show their GRIT personally as well as professionally.

Isolation to Belonging: In families, peer ​groups, clubs, and teams, we find spaces to ​belong. Anxiety may make us hesitate, but ​discovering belonging involves trusting and ​embracing these spaces with confidence.

Loneliness to Connection: Relationships play a ​crucial role in learning and growth. Nurturing ​supportive connections is vital for well-being. ​How do we initiate, maintain, and trust these ​connections?
