Meet Christy Robbins, WHNP!
Christy Robbins, WHNP is a women’s health nurse practitioner, professor, lactation consultant, wife, mom of three nurses, and grandmother. Her focus is on wellness and disease prevention.
Christy Robbins, WHNP, was born and raised on the coast in Southeast Texas. From the time she was in the fourth grade, she knew she wanted to be a nurse. “I read all the biographies of founding nurses such as Clara Barton and Florence Nightingale,” Robbins said. This passion led her to Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Subsequently, Robbins pursued a Master’s Degree in Nursing at the University of Texas Houston Health Sciences, specializing in Women’s Health.
Robbins worked for more than three decades in Labor and Delivery near Port Arthur, Texas. In addition to this expertise, she is a Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Robbins has over 40 years of experience working with new mothers to accomplish their breastfeeding goals. After enduing two significant hurricanes (Rita and Ike) in 2009, she and her husband knew they needed to relocate. Eventually, they arrived in College Station. She currently works as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner at HealthPoint ABC Clinic in College Station. There she cares for women of all ages, specifically focusing on OB/GYN. Since relocating, she has been named “Breastfeeding Advocate of the Year” by BVCAA-WIC Brazos Valley.
In addition to her work at HealthPoint, Robbins is an Associate Clinical Faculty for the Texas A&M College of Medicine, where she teaches 3rd-year medical students. Students benefit from her wealth of knowledge, especially her clinical skills regarding the care of women. She has been recognized as “Outstanding OB/GYN Faculty” by Texas A&M students five times. As if her plate were not full enough, she also serves as Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor and a clinical preceptor for Texas A&M University, training future nurse practitioners. Robbins said, “I love to teach and want to pass on the knowledge and skills I have gained throughout my career.”
“I have been with Healthpoint for 12 ½ years. I enjoy working here because of their values, mission, and commitment to our community,” Robbins said. HealthPoint is fortunate to have her on the team. Moreover, the women in our community benefit from her wealth of knowledge and expert care. “I am passionate about caring for women; I feel that women have so many important roles and my focus is to keep them healthy and well,” Robbins said.
