MEET THE TEAM

Bryce Gage

I was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee and moved to the Valley in grade school. I enjoy working at LPS and feel like I am part of a team filling an important role. In my free time I play D&D (Dungeons and Dragons) on the weekends. Fun random fact about me is that I used to play Overwatch competitively.

I graduated with my BS in Accounting at Fresno State. During my free time, I enjoy being on the road and traveling to spend time with family and friends. I also entertain myself by cooking, baking, knitting, crocheting and working on other arts and craft projects. Being a part of the LPS team is amazing. Everyone is very friendly, patient, and are always ready to lend a hand.

My addiction is college football. I enjoy family, finding great food spots and playing the guitar and drums. I’m a graduate of Fresno State and earned a Masters of Business Administration from The University of Nebraska.

Kara Higashida

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.

Stephanie Grieb

I graduated from California State University, Fresno with a bachelor’s degree in Business with an emphasis in Accounting. I was raised in the Central Valley. In my free time, I like to read books, try new restaurants, and travel to fun places. I like working for Linger, Peterson & Shrum because the people are kind and I’ve learned a lot from my experience here.

David Vang

I am a graduate of Edison High School and received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accountancy from Fresno State. In my free time, I enjoy bowling, hiking, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. My favorite thing about my job is helping clients with tax preparation and participating in the lively corporate events such as the LPS Olympic Games, Half-Christmas, and blind french fry tasting.

I graduated from Fresno State with a BA in Psychology and minors in Sociology & Child Development. Most of my  career has been in social services, most recently working with the homeless in Hanford and in criminal justice working with high risk offenders. I love spending time with friends & family – especially cooking for them. Some of my favorite things to do are sailing and white water rafting. I love being part of the LPS team! It’s a great group of really smart people that are dedicated to being the best they can be.
