Bertine was born in Bronxville, New York. She was a figure skater until the age of 23, appearing in ice skating shows including the Ice Capades and Holiday on Ice. She undertook her undergraduate education at Colgate University, where she competed in cross country running and rowing alongside skating. After graduating she took a year out to travel and pursue her skating career, before returning to education to study for a Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Arizona. Whilst in Arizona she took up competing in triathlon, eventually spending three years as a professional in the sport.
Bertine also pursued a career as a writer, working for ESPN. Whilst working at ESPN she accepted an assignment in 2006 to qualify for the 2008 Summer Olympics in any sport, choosing to focus on cycling. She took up citizenship of Saint Kitts and Nevis alongside her American citizenship to be able to even attempt qualification for the Olympics. However, she failed to qualify for the 2008 Games. Although her ESPN assignment was now over she attempted to qualify again for the 2012 Summer Olympics, again unsuccessfully.
Bertine is a co-founder of Le Tour Entier, an organisation campaigning for the re-establishment of the Tour de France Féminin and has been credited as "the catalyst for the movement to bring women back to the Tour." She was signed by the Wiggle Honda team in 2014, ahead of the inaugural running of La Course by Le Tour de France, a criterium organised by the Tour de France organisers the Amaury Sport Organisation in response to Le Tour Entier's campaign. Bertine joined BMW p/b Happy Tooth Dental in 2015, making her debut with the team at Grand Prix cycliste de Gatineau in June of that year. In November 2015 she was announced as part of the inaugural squad for the Cylance Pro Cycling team for the 2016 season.
