About the Leadership Team

Kristin Macapagal (Director)

Kristin Macapagal (she/her) is a proud member of the 2012 REALITY Global charter cohort and is honored to partner with all of you in shaping the collective vision of the Revolve community. She is the daughter of Filipino/a/x immigrants and grew up in Houston, Texas.

After eight years working with sovereign indigenous Nations in the rural Four Corners of New Mexico, Kristin recently moved with her fiancé Will to his new military station in Tucson, Arizona.

She co-facilitated Catalyst: Sacred with Leah Strelsin in 2017. She is passionate about diversity, equity and inclusiveness; leadership and identity development; and disrupting systems of oppression through collective action.

Kristin taught high school English on the Navajo Nation as a 2009 Teach For America – New Mexico corps member. She has prior experience directing human resources at a for-profit company; teaching technological literacy in rural Namibia; working at an international education nonprofit and as a managing director at Teach For America. She earned a bachelor’s degree in English at The University of Texas at Austin in 2007 and master’s degree in international education policy at Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2009.

Kristin is excited to work with Lauren, Joey and with all of you in the pursuit of justice through the lens of Jewish values.

Lauren Slater Siegmund (Catalyst Program Manager)

Lauren Slater Siegmund (she/her) is a native New Yorker who will soon be moving to Detroit, MI (after a brief stint in Frederick, MD) with her husband, Andy.

For the past two years, Lauren has been a Catalyst Facilitator, co-leading Catalysts on self-care (Repair, Renew, Recharge in Malibu, CA) and values-based relationship building (Partners in Minneapolis, MN). A 2012 TFA New York Corps Member, Lauren attended Reality Leadership in 2013. Having gained so much from the Revolve Community—including a renewed Jewish identity and treasured friendships—she is pleased to have the chance to give back in this new role.

When not Revolving, Lauren is the Senior Training Specialist at Grounded Solutions. In her free time, she can be found running (super slowly); reading a book by her fireplace; or rewatching old episodes of Game of Thrones.

She is absolutely thrilled for the year ahead, to serve the Revolve Community as the new Catalyst Program Manager (and—hopefully—finally adopt a dog!).

 (he/ him) is a native of Barrington, IL outside of Chicago, and current resident of Milwaukee, WI. Joey is a 2014 Teach for America alumni and attended REALITY Leadership in 2015.
