Avanti Bergquist

I am honored to serve on the Renton School Board and am excited to run for re-election to Position #2.

I am a proud graduate of the Renton School District and have two wonderful children who currently attend school in our district. 

Navigating through the pandemic has been difficult, with there often being no right answers. Through it all, our school district has persevered to try to do our best for our students, staff, families, and community.

Born and Raised in the RSD

With the exception of being away for higher education, I have lived in the Renton School District my whole life!

Renton School District Graduate

 attended Highlands and Kennydale Elementary, McKnight Middle, and graduated from Hazen High School.

Renton School District Family

My husband graduated from the Renton School District along with me (picture below!), and our two children currently attend school in our district.

Renton Schools prepared me for educational success

I went on to graduate from Duke University, earn a master’s degree and doctorate of medicine, then complete a Psychiatry residency and a Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship at the University of Washington.


Serving Through My Career

As a child psychiatrist at Eating Recovery Center and Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center, and formerly as a faculty at the University of Washington, I am committed to serving and advocating for children in our community.

Serving the Renton Community

I am so proud to live in the Renton School District and serve our students, families, and community on the Renton School District Board of Directors.
