I was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee and moved to the Valley in grade school. I am a graduate of Fresno State with a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting. I enjoy working at LPS and feel like I am a part of a team filling an important role. In my free time I play Dungeons & Dragons. Fun random fact about me is that I used to play Overwatch competitively.

I'm a Fresno State graduate, but I'm also a fan of Notre Dame. If I'm not working, I enjoy sleeping in, traveling and seeing new places. I like hanging out with friends and family, and tailgating at Fresno State home games. It's a pleasure working at LPS because of the people and also because I feel valued here. My favorite dish is lasagna at Luna's in Clovis.

Kevin Siharath
Associate

I graduated from Fresno State with a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting. I spent the early years in my life in Utah and later moved to Fresno and have been here ever since. During my free time I enjoy reading different novels, hanging out with my friends, and playing with my cats. My time here at LPS has been nothing short of incredible because everyone here is friendly, welcoming, and I have learned a whole bunch from working here!

I was born in Montgomery, Alabama but spent most of my life in the Central Valley and attended Riverdale High School. I graduated from Fresno State with a bachelor’s degree in Sports Administration.

After several years of working in athletics at Fresno State and UC Davis I decided to return to school (during the pandemic) and get a bachelor’s degree in Accounting, which I did at Colorado State University, Global.

In my free time I enjoy reading, spending time with my growing family and playing basketball or golf. Working for LPS has been a dream come true as everyone here is friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable.
