Dawn Evancho, PA-C, chose to pursue medicine, especially Family Practice and Pediatrics, because she loves to meet new people. “I especially enjoy getting to know them and their families. There is joy in following their lives and health for numerous years. My patients grow up, and then I inherit their kids as patients!”

Born and raised in upstate New York, Dawn attended the State University of New York where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Biology. She then attended the Physician Assistant Program at Charles Drew University in downtown Los Angeles, CA. In 1991, after finishing PA school and her board exams, Dawn married her high school sweetheart, Ron, and the young couple then settled in Denver, Colorado. They moved to Cary in 1997 to be closer to their families.

Since then, Dawn convinced her medical assistant, Chrissy, to date her husband’s brother, and now her nurse is not just her dear friend, but also her sister-in-law! Dawn has two daughters, two dogs, a few fish, and some hamsters. She loves to volunteer at church, ski, and go on adventures to Disney, Universal, the beach, and anywhere with roller coasters!
