Karmen Masson, CEC, PCC
Co-Director of Programming

I am excited to serve in 2022 and 2023 as Co-Director of Programs for the Edmonton ICF Charter Chapter. Lifelong learning and contribution to the community are two of my core-essential values, so I expect to enjoy this journey! 

My path to becoming a professional coach has had a lot of twists, turns, and learnings. My first career began in the late ‘90s when I worked as a lawyer in private practice, then moved to public-sector practice where I also served as a senior manager and executive leader. At the height of my legal career, my partner and I had 2 children, and in my ‘spare time’ I led the development of a local charitable organization and taught law at the post-secondary level.

After experiencing how coaching skills were the ‘secret sauce’ in my effectiveness as a leader, mentor, facilitator, and parent, I attended Royal Roads University and graduated as a Certified Executive Coach in 2017. That same year, I started my own coaching practice and leadership development consultancy Karmen Masson Professional Coaching & Consulting and have since founded Your Best Practice - Coaching For Lawyers.

I look forward to getting to know the other Chapter coaches (new and seasoned) and helping to make a difference in the lives of others, one coaching conversation at a time!
