Meet Karmen Masson
I’m a lawyer turned professional coach who helps lawyers create meaningful change in their day-to-day work and in their career trajectories.
I became a lawyer more than 23 years ago and worked in private and in-house legal practice. I’ve also worked as a senior manager and executive leader in the justice system, and I taught law for six years at the post-secondary level. At the height of my legal career, my partner and I had two children and I led the development of a local charitable organization. I’ve learned a lot, failed a lot, improved a lot, and redefined what success means to me. Along the way, I discovered meaning in my work. I started to make the right decisions for my own right reasons. I developed strategies to guide me forward in my adventures in law and beyond.
I’ve learned that I can help others succeed in transforming how they work and how they can develop their careers. Trained as a Certified Executive Coach in 2017 and certified
by the International Coach Federation, I help clients from across Alberta and Canada connect with what is meaningful to them and work with them to make lasting change that permeates their personal and professional lives.
My mission is to support and champion you to develop your own best practice and grow the career and life you love.
What people are saying

“I was surprised how accessible so much of the change was! I found the process to be very practical. It was relieving and exciting to watch solutions hit the pavement quickly.”

“Karmen inspired me. The cost/benefit to your professional practice is almost priceless.”
