Some fun facts…

I prefer coffee over tea, but always drink peppermint tea before heading to bed.

Roger Federer is my favourite tennis player EVER. He is the GOAT. No question. I even wrote a blog post about him.

I can pretty much recite the script of ‘Fawlty Towers’. The episode with Mrs Richards is my favourite.

And did I mention I’m working on my first novel?

Nerissa has done work for me several times and every time it was delivered on time and with great content.

Nerissa is able to put my ‘layman’ terms into  professional and marketable material that has being successful in bringing in more clients.

I highly recommend Nerissa for all your copy writing.

Highly talented. Very professional. My pleasure to recommend Nerissa
5.0

Nerissa is one of the most talented writers and professional communicators with whom I’ve worked. Her writing and proofing skills are second to none, with high-quality content across features, press releases and digital media.  Rather than cut and paste, Nerissa applies crafted content for multiple channels which many writers don’t always do.

She also has a high-level attention to detail, ensuring the product delivered is error-free. Nerissa does her homework, spending time on desk research to ensure the validity of what she’s writing. She is highly professional to work with and is always up-front about what she can deliver and by when.

It’s my pleasure to recommend Nerissa and her communication services, and, like many of her existing clients, I am in the process of working with her again.

Fantastic to work with
5.0

I recently engaged Nerissa of The Melbourne Health Writer to complete some work for a new product being launched. Nerissa was so easy to work with, required little direction, and completed the work in what was a VERY tight deadline. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Thank you Nerissa
4.5

We have just developed a new website from scratch, and Nerissa worked very closely with our business and web development teams to produce the content.

Nerissa took the time to understand our brand properly and what we were aiming to convey through several phone calls and by reading material we provided.

Nerissa was professional, efficient and understood exactly what we required.

Nerissa met all the deadlines and was very responsive in turning the draft into the final document.

She was able to bring our ideas to life and clearly convey some difficult concepts.

Nerissa is very bright, business-savvy and quick at coming up with content solutions.

She was also flexible in terms of writing extra copy which we had not initially asked for.

We were delighted with Nerissa’s copy – which conveys the essence of our brand very well – and I would recommend her highly.

Able to write complex information so it's easy to understand
5.0

“It was great working with Nerissa. She asked relevant questions at the start, so that she could develop appropriate content that spoke to the target audience. She was able to distill complex material to make it easy to understand and structured the content clearly and logically. Since completing the project, Nerissa has started another project within my organisation and I will use her services again without hesitation.”

Great copy writer
3.5

We were referred to Nerissa so our initial discussion focused on our needs and how she might be able to assist. As we were new to blogging and using social media, Nerissa was really helpful in giving us choice on the types of blogs she could write but also gave us the confidence that she could help us with social media to where one can, SEO.

Nerissa will take on the suggested subject matter, go away and do some research and then throw around ideas as to how best to position the message we wish to convey.

We have completed a number of blogs and on all occasions, Nerissa has been very easy to work with minimal changes required to copy.

Would highly recommend her.

Nerissa didn't disappoint!
5.0

I highly recommend Nerissa. I was referred to her recently by a friend who had heard some good reports. She certainly did not disappoint. She was very easy to work with, always communicated her timeline well and stuck to the schedule. I was very happy with the result and look forward to seeing it online when my new site goes live.

Nerissa from the Melbourne Health Writer has been simply AMAZING!

I have worked with other copywriters before, but Nerissa has shown true
professionalism on my project.

I could tell that she took the time to understand my business and the business
needs.

Nerissa is now considered part of our team and I look forward to working
with her in the years to come.

Nerissa’s writing is second to none! She’s a fabulous wordsmith that has the power to craft an enthusiastic and compelling story, communicating complex health and environmental issues in a way that’s not only easy to understand but also creates a moving and motivating experience for the reader. Nerissa has been contributing to our blog for some time and we’re absolutely thrilled to share her voice with our community. We couldn’t recommend her more highly.
