Evans is known not only for her earlier stint on Days of our Lives, but also as Katherine Bell on General Hospital and Sierra Montgomery on As the World Turns. She has appeared in many television shows and movies in guest roles, local theatre productions and was nominated for, and won, a Soap Opera Digest Award for Favorite Supercouple, with co-star Stephen Nichols (Steve "Patch" Johnson).

As a working mother, Evans finds time to enjoy interior decorating, cooking, and crafts. She has a mail order business for fresh, bake-them-yourself apple pies. She married Dr. Michael Schwartz in 1985, and together they reside in Southern California with their three children, Danny, Katie, and Matthew.
