Andi McDowell from Aspect has worked with Kate closely for a long while and
every time she tries to offer to help Kate in ways similar to this she
refuses the help. I agree with this and would support it.

Kate suffers from what most operational people suffer from - if they are 
doing their job well, its really hard to notice.

If need be, I'll chip in some personal funds to get this done.
