Born and raised near Beaumont, Texas, Ms. Robbins has over 30 years of experience providing care for women. She values the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of women, which ultimately impacts the whole family.

Christy has been a nurse since 1983, when she graduated from Lamar University in Beaumont with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. She began her career as a labor and delivery nurse and also worked as a school nurse while her children were young.

Christy later returned to school to complete her master’s degree in nursing at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, which enabled her to become a board-certified women’s health nurse practitioner.

Christy has always been passionate about the importance of breastfeeding. She breastfed all three of her children and even donated breast milk to a child who had a rare disorder and would have died without enough breast milk to sustain her. As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Christy assists new moms with breastfeeding. She taught childbirth and breastfeeding classes for over 20 years and was selected as “Breastfeeding Advocate of the Year” in 2011.

As a women’s health nurse practitioner, Christy’s focus is on wellness and disease prevention. She provides annual physicals, well-woman exams, prenatal care, contraception counseling, lactation consultations, treatment for common gynecological conditions and more. Prior to joining ABC Women, Children & Family Clinic in 2009, Christy worked at University of Texas Medical Branch clinics and a private OB/GYN practice in the Beaumont / Port Arthur, Texas area. She is also an associate clinical professor for the Texas A&M Health Science Center, where she teaches medical students in the clinical setting.

Christy is married with three grown children and one grandchild. She relocated to College Station after her hometown of Nederland received extensive damage from Hurricanes Rita and Ike.
