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?

I’m also super-easy to work with, meet all deadlines, and have lots of happy clients.

Nerissa didn't disappoint!

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.

I find Nerissa easy to work with. Her writing is delivered on time and she will follow up if she requires clarification or has any concerns. Nerissa has an open mind and is willing to conduct the necessary research to provide an unbiased, evidence based view on the wellness topic of my choice. She makes sure the content and quality of her writing always aligns to my brand.

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.
