Patrick Suhrbier came to St. James Immigrant Assistance in the spring of 2015 as a Legal Services Aide. He brings with him years of social service experience with immigrant communities along the Texas/Mexico border. More recently, Patrick interned with the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, where he gained a broad training in immigration legal assistance and advocacy work.  

Patrick holds a BA in Political Science and Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of Colorado and a certificate in Non-Profit Management from the University of Washington. He has also studied and trained for four years in a small monastery in Nova Scotia, where he completed a course of training that prepared him for his professional certification as a hospital/hospice chaplain.  

Patrick moved to Seattle nine years ago with his wife and three cats. He has spent the last two years uniting the skills from his chaplain training with his experience and passion for immigrant-rights work. .
