Crystal Follette

Director of Food Services & Director of Childcare Services

Crystal has been part of the Y for 15 years. She began in the Early Preschool classroom that was located behind the Wiggins center. She moved from teacher, to program coordinator and then into the childcare director of the Blue Hill center. She retired from the classroom in 2018. Crystal began as the cook in July of 2019.

Crystal has 3 passions: her family, good food and children.

If friends were to describe her, they would probably say she is introverted and quiet – too serious. She dreams of writing a book that is entitled Crystalisms. She does not have a chicken named after her. It’s a goal.

Crystal lives in Ellsworth with her husband Justin, has two children and 2 grandchildren.

With DEFY since 2005.
