My name is Kimberly Masson and I was recently hired as the Executive Director of the Embrace Life Council. My family and I have lived in Iqaluit, Nunavut for nine years. I was formerly the Guidance Counsellor at Inuksuk High School and have spent just shy of 20 years in Education. Prior to that I was in business management. I have served on the boards of a number of non-profit organizations in the territory and continue to volunteer in various capacities. All of this has prepared me for this new role with ELC and I’m delighted to get started.
As I orient myself with my new responsibilities and get to know all of our valued partners, I encourage you to contact me by email or telephone with any questions, suggestions, or comments. I look forward to working with you to make Nunavummiut, our communities, and our country healthier and stronger.
