Julie Farmer PA Training


My name is Julie Farmer, and I have been running myPA since 2002 on a part-time and full-time since 2005.  During that time, I have run a successful Virtual PA business.  I have trained Personal Assistants (PA), Secretaries, and those wanting to set up their own Virtual Businesses.

When I started the business, I didn’t realise I had a passion for training.  I have to admit; I love it.  I love seeing women realise they are better than they think.  That they can earn their own money and be in charge of their own destiny.


Excellent course.
Julie. was a great trainer. I have newfound confidence with the hints and tips to aid minute-taking and PA Skills. For the first time in a long time, I am looking forward to going back into the office and showing what I can do.
