RuthAnne Bergt has been practicing law with BGO since 2014. 

Before law school, RuthAnne gained a real-world education when called upon to help run the family business after her father was struck with illness. The business included an Athletic Club and a B&B, both in Oregon.

RuthAnne has also two years' experience selling real estate and four years' experience in commercial banking.


Later she was able to pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer. Her dream was made possible when Thomas Jefferson School of Law in downtown San Diego provided her with a full three-year academic scholarship.

In law school RuthAnne served as President of the Moot Court Honor Society, was a member of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Society, and interned for the California Attorney General’s Office and San Diego County Public Defender’s Office. She was honored to receive the Witkin Award for Academic Excellence for her paper Eradicating Female Infanticide in India by Enforcement of Woman's Property Rights. 

Born in LaJolla, California, RuthAnne was raised in Bend, Oregon, and moved to Alaska in 2013.
