Nothing is known about Bertie's life prior to or as the outbreak began.
Bertie became a resident of the Hilltop Colony at an undisclosed point before this episode. She traveled on a supply run with Freddie, Carson and Wesley to scavenge supplies, most importantly medical supplies. Their car crashed on the way due to Walkers, and the four hid inside a nearby house from the dead. She and Wesley were subsequently rescued when Rick and his group arrived to rescue her group on behalf of Jesus, after-which she alerted her rescuers to the fact that two of her members were still in the building, one of them being hurt. She joined the group in the RV on the ride back to Hilltop and entered with the group once they got there. She is later seen cleaning her boots as she sits on a set of steps when Dr. Carson approaches her.
This list shows the victims Bertie has killed:
- Possibly numerous counts of zombies.
