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?

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.

Thank You Nerissa!
5.0

I am highly thankful to Nerissa for helping me overhaul my website copy, as well as developing engaging content for my patients. Nerissa worked hard to find the right keywords on each page and helped me undertake valuable market research. She also gave me helpful suggestions that I could immediately implement to improve my website SEO.

She made the whole process a breeze with recorded instructional videos that I could play back in my own time which helped guide me through her suggestions and thought processes. Her style of health writing was exactly what I had in mind that I could not put on paper myself. I found Nerissa to be amazing to work with and I highly recommend her at the Melbourne Health Writer to anyone in need of medical health writing.
