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.

I have worked with Nerissa before and have always been impressed by her professionalism as well as her skill, so she was the first person I thought of when we had to create almost 70 emails for our nurture campaign. It was a big job and she handled it admirably, not just conducting the necessary research and producing the work to brief, but also successfully dealing with numerous stakeholders – something that’s of utmost importance in our organisation. That I was able to entrust her with this, without acting as go-between, says as much about her as her talent for the written work does. Nerissa is a pleasure to deal with, and I am happy to recommend her to anyone looking for a highly professional and accomplished writer who will take the time to understand a brief and create content that will cut through the noise.
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.
I have been working closely with Nerissa for a number of years now as she continually assists us with marketing and copy for various projects. She is our go to person for anything writing related and she is extremely reliable and quick to respond. Her work ethic and level of professionalism is outstanding and she continually exceeds our expectations every single time. We look forward to working with her on new projects in the near future. Thank you Nerissa!
We recently engaged Nerissa Bentley to assist with rewriting the content for our website. We chose Nerissa because of her experience in health, her prompt response to queries and excellent communication. We found working with Nerissa to be a great experience, she is professional, efficient and highly skilled at what she does. Nerissa is an excellent copywriter who we recommend highly.
I recently engaged Nerissa Bentley to help me write short copy to promote an online course I am running. I chose Nerissa because she works specifically with people in the health industry and I wanted someone who would understand what I needed and knew the language that fits with what I want to achieve.
I found working with Nerissa to be easy, straight-forward and uncomplicated. Nerissa is a talented and professional copywriter who is very accommodating and a joy to work with. In my business I want a remote team that understands my needs and thinks outside of my own capabilities, Nerissa is such a person.
I recently engaged Nerissa Bentley for content writing services on behalf of one of my clients in the health industry. Nerissa delivered a well researched, high quality article to us on time and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend her services and look forward to commissioning her for more work in the future

I’ve worked with Nerissa on a number of projects over the years. I initially selected Nerissa as she is not only a great communicator but a great listener. She really takes the time to understand what your requirements are and who your audience is and takes care and pride in delivering material that hits the mark. Nerissa’s work is always on time, well researched and of course, well written. I would not hesitate to recommend her services.
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 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.
