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 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!

Highly professional and accomplished writer
5.0

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.

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.

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.

Nerissa has assisted me, very professionally and friendly, with my two very niche businesses.

Nerissa’s ability to be in the ‘customers’ mindset when writing content was very valuable to me.

Nerissa is very passionate and customer focused.

Highly recommend.

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.

Nerissa has been contributing health articles for our e-newsletter since June. Each article has been well-researched and written, ensuring our SEO and product requirements have been met. She takes on all jobs with enthusiasm and has consistently met deadlines. A high recommendation on behalf of Independence Australia.
