Gregg Sims

In 2014 Gregg and his Pro, Amy Sanders, were fortunate to win the coveted People's Choice Mirror Ball.  This year Gregg returns as a Pro (which maybe something of a stretch) having been asked by his granddaughter, Sydney Snyder Sellers, to be her partner.  Gregg considers it an honor to be working with her.  Most of all Gregg is proud of Sydney for wanting to participate in a community event that promises to help so many families impacted by Alzheimer's Disease.
