If you ever move to China, Christyne Holmes (BSHE ’89) is a good person to know. Holmes has been living in Beijing since 2003 with her husband, John, who works for Conoco Phillips, and their son, John Kendrick, 5. Holmes shares her expertise by serving as a moderator for a 2,000-member Yahoo group that helps other expatriates looking for everything from size 12 shoes to a T-ball stand and from play dates to a prom dress. “It’s one of those safety nets that keeps you sane,” Holmes says. She also does charity work with the Roundabout, a thrift store that sends aid to inner Mongolia and the Sichuan province, site of last year’s deadly earthquake. “It feels good to be able to help people and fill in the gaps where people are in need,” she says.
