Tena Lozano is the Immediate Past Chair of the California Jump$tart Coalition. In addition, she is the executive director of the Richard Myles Johnson Foundation, the state credit union foundation for California and Nevada. The RMJ Foundation’s signature program, Bite of Reality teaches teens real-world financial realities in a fun, interactive simulation that appeals to their desire to be financially successful. The simulation is both interactive (with volunteers playing the role of pushy salespeople) and tech-savvy (with students utilizing a smartphone app to enter their purchasing decisions), making for a timely and relevant experience.
