About Attorney Kelly Bitov
Hello, and welcome to my site! I am a public interest environmental attorney, based in Western Massachusetts. I am an alumni of the law and public health dual-degree program between Northeastern University School of Law and the Tufts University School of Medicine Public Health and Professional Degree Program and am admitted to the Massachusetts bar.
These days, I'm wearing a lot of different hats. In my hometown of Plainfield, Massachusetts, I run a transformational retreat center, Nine Mountain Retreats, for yoga, meditation and other transformational practices. During proxy season, I work with a small corporate accountability practice, Strategic Counsel, using law creatively to push major corporations to take action on climate change, worker's rights, customer privacy and more. In the recent past, I taught Environmental Law and Human Rights at Hampshire College, advising incredibly creative students in creating their own courses of study.
In my volunteer work, I am an active community member and past Board Member of Earthdance Creative Living Project, an artist-run workshop, residency and retreat center in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts. In October 2018, I joined the Board of ISMETA, the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association, a professional organization supporting somatic practitioners around the world.
Pro Bono Volunteer Opportunities
I am interested in volunteer opportunities with environmental advocacy organizations and grassroots community organizing groups.
I seek mentors who are current professionals in the legal field. I am interested in mentoring younger women who have an interest in legal work.
I love networking and am always interested in meeting with other professionals to discuss job or volunteer ideas and opportunities, particularly in Western Massachusetts and Southern Vermont.
