December 2018 LobStar: 
Meet Sierra Heinzman

We’re really lucky that Sierra Heinzman was working the dessert station at her last job in Philly when she realized she was looking for something a bit more fast paced (and also, she didn’t like dessert).
Enter her sister Brittah, who already worked at Luke’s in Rittenhouse, which led to Sierra joining the team a couple of years ago. She’s now a shiftleader and integral part of our Rittenhouse shack.
When she’s not crushing rolls (and maybe having a Crab Grilled Cheese on her break ), you might find her perfecting her sushi skills with the techniques she picked up in her culinary school training. You’re a LobStar, Sierra and we’re lucky to have ya!


November 2018 LobStar: 
Meet Emily Jacome

Emily Jacome started at Luke's on the Upper East Side in June 2017, and became a shiftleader shortly thereafter. As a founding member of our Garment District team in NYC, Emily has been a key part of educating our guests on our charitable causes, and demonstrating the Maine Way day in and day out.

She hopes to make hospitality a lifelong career and we're thrilled that she chose Luke's to start it. When she's not serving guests in Garment, you can find her in the Bronx tending to her albino frogs, beta fish, and cat, or enjoying a Luke's teammate classic on her break: grilled cheese sprinkled with our seasoning and chips or a shrimp roll.

Say hi to Emily, our LobStar of the month, next time you’re in our Garment District shack on 39th and Broadway!


October 2018 LobStar: 
Meet Davon Shelton

Davon Shelton was one of the original teammates who opened Luke’s Lobster City Hall in Chicago in 2015. He joined us as a teammate while finishing up college at Chicago State, where he studied Communications and graced the stage in theater performances and the mic in radio broadcasts. Davon continues his passion for communications and radio today in his weekly Friday radio show on WCSU, where he talks about the intersection of sports and music.

Davon’s the guy that you cannot talk to without breaking out in a smile, either from one of his Davon-isms (“Happy Friday Eve” if you meet him on a Thursday), or just because his own smile is so big you can’t help imitating. Davon is more than just tag lines—his genuine conversation with guests and helpful hospitality has earned him 10x more mentions in Yelp and Google reviews than any other teammate—all of them glowing. His infectious personality is what qualified him to be one of two shift leaders to head to San Francisco and open our newest shack —and he shined from open to close.

Congratulations Davon on going above and beyond to earn the first ever monthly Luke’s Teammate Spotlight!
