The Big Dream

BY ANELIS COSCIONI
@ VOL 17 ON MAR 04, 2016

Anelis Cristina Coscioni was born and raised in Brazil where she graduated from a veterinary school. After finishing her Doctorate, she married Jorge Luna, moved to California, Idaho, Mexico and finally to Sioux Falls. Anelis was actually “made” here. When she arrived in Sioux Falls, she couldn’t work because of her Visa restrictions. She started volunteering and discovered a new, fantastic world in Non Profit. With the support of her husband and the help of a good friend, Charlie Day, she discovered that she could use her gifts doing what makes her really happy - helping others. While being a stay at home mom to the almost 4 years old Anita, Anelis, together with her Soroptimist club, started a free Toy Lending Library and, that, was when she started thinking big 
