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 been contributing health articles for our e-newsletter. 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.

Elizabeth Cannatelli

Marketing and Communications Manager, Independence Australia

We have just developed a new website from scratch, and Nerissa worked very closely with our business and web development teams to produce the content.

Nerissa took the time to understand our brand properly and what we were aiming to convey through several phone calls and by reading material we provided.

Nerissa was professional, efficient and understood exactly what we required.

Nerissa met all the deadlines and was very responsive in turning the draft into the final document.

She was able to bring our ideas to life and clearly convey some difficult concepts.

Nerissa is very bright, business-savvy and quick at coming up with content solutions.

She was also flexible in terms of writing extra copy which we had not initially asked for.

We were delighted with Nerissa’s copy – which conveys the essence of our brand very well – and I would recommend her highly.

Ronnie Oliech

Director, Imani Tribe

Nerissa’s writing is second to none! She’s a fabulous wordsmith who has the power to craft an enthusiastic and compelling story, communicating complex health and environmental issues in a way that’s not only easy to understand but also creates a moving and motivating experience for the reader.

Nerissa has been contributing to our blog for some time and we’re absolutely thrilled to share her voice with our community. We couldn’t recommend her more highly.
