Project Description

Sophie Drechsler, Chief of Staff


Sophie spent the first years of her life moving from North Yorkshire to Cambridge to Brazil and to America before finally settling in London. She served as a cadet in the CCF Army at school for five years becoming the Company Sergeant Major in her final year at school. She loves all activities, whether it’s skiing, cycling, boxing, tennis, swimming or climbing, she is always trying to do something active with friends.

Sophie studied Business Studies at The University of Manchester and then spent almost five years working in the digital advertising world. It was time for a change and she joined the Step Up To Serve as a volunteer in the lead up to the launch of #iwill and then stayed on in a permanent role.

“I believe everyone deserves access to the opportunities that social action provides, no matter where they are from to help them improve their lives, which is why I am so happy to be a part of this incredible team.”
