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?

“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.”

Knowledgeable AHPRA compliance specialist
5.0

We hired Nerissa to help our writing team gain a better knowledge of crafting web copy for Australian healthcare clients that doesn’t violate rules or regulations put forth by AHPRA.

She provided us with a compliancy manual that was not only well-crafted and thoughtful, but continues to help us provide better content for our own clients while staying within the rules and guidelines of AHPRA.

Nerissa was easy and prompt to work with, and even let us review a draft of the material for any requests we wanted her to go into greater detail on. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone in need of a knowledgeable AHPRA compliance specialist!

I hired Nerissa to update our website copy and she really took the time to understand my business, its needs and to make sure that we were a good fit for each other. Her communication was clear and concise, there were no hidden costs and the project was delivered on time. 

Nerissa was such a pleasure to work with and we will be absolutely using her services again in the future.

The Melbourne Health writer provided both proof reading and editing services to an incredibly high standard. She understood the brief without hand holding, was communicative and proactive with deadlines, but also flexible and approachable when these needed changing. The quality of the service was excellent. Highly recommend.

Talented and professional copywriter who is a joy to work with
5.0

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.

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.
