We recently sat down with Cate Sauer, customer success manager at Higher Logic, for a quick Q&A to learn a little more about her outside of the workplace. From her first job to what she would choose as her superpower, the answers are all below!

How long have you been at Higher Logic? It is my one-year anniversary at HL (Higher Logic) this upcoming November! Before that, I was a client of HL for about two years at a small association.  

Where are you located? Chicago, Illinois–in the Albany Park neighborhood on the northwest side of the city.  

What is your favorite thing about your job? I love being able to talk with organization staff that are trying to support their members, and wear 12 different hats. I serve as a resource, a listening ground, and can talk shop about association challenges.   

What was your very first job? Working at Culvers—a Midwest burger chain known for custard and “buttered” buns. I have used “deluxe and combo” meal metaphors to describe Higher Logic Thrive. You are looking for a marketing platform and have OC? Let us upgrade that to a meal combo and save you some money overall.   

What do you like to do outside of work? I am an avid yogi, traveler, and enjoy seeing live improv and shows. I love estate sales, finding new vegan eats, and petting all the neighborhood cats.  

Favorite sports team (if applicable)? Chicago Sky! Our Women’s basketball team  

If you were not in customer success, what would be your dream job? I always envisioned being a vet, but I do not think my empathic heart could take the day-to-day challenges.  

If you could choose, what superpower would you want?  Oof, superpower to influence everyone to vote. Check here if you are registered!  

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? I had a trip booked to South Korea for March 2020, and still have not been able to reschedule! Hoping 2023 it will happen.  

If you could go back and talk to your 18-year-old self, what would you say? OH GOODNESS. Trust your gut sooner and be nicer to your mother. 

If you are married and/or have kids? What are their names? I live with my partner, Eric, who is an implementation manager at a finance software company, and our two cats, Chuck and Mr. Mellow. 

Are you involved with any charities? A few! And I volunteer at a local food kitchen in my neighborhood.  

Any other fun facts? I am growing a lemon tree on my balcony! 


Ice cream or cake? If it is vegan, cake!  

Cats or dogs? Cats!  

Summer or winter? Winter  

Morning or evening? Evening   

TV shows or movies? TV Shows (Buffy!)  

A night out or a night in? Night out  

Cannonball into the pool or dip a toe in first? Cannonball (if it is deep enough! Safety first)   

Have your own Netflix account or use somebody else’s? Use someone else’s (but I have my own Hulu!)  

Go-to karaoke song? Summer Lovin’ – Grease  

Drive or fly? Fly
