Anna previously came to Port Charles in 1985. She was immediately befriended by Holly Scorpio and landed a job working with Sean Donley, friend to Robert Scorpio. Unbeknownst to Holly, Anna was once an espionage partner with Robert... and his previous wife.
Although most of Anna's time spent in Port Charles dealt with law enforcement issues, she definitely had a few exciting moments of her own, like fencing pieces of the Aztec treasure with Sean, and falling in love with handsome Scot, Duke Lavery, who later died in her arms. Let's not forget that she dealt with daughter, Robin's, kidnapping, and faced the evil, Faison, who was the purported villain in the boat explosion death that killed both Anna and Robert.
In 2001, it was learned that Anna was still alive. She returned to All My Children paired with David Hayward, and gave birth to little Leora, who died before we had a chance to get to know her. The baby's death has been the propellant behind David's bitterness and his vendetta against Dr. Joe Martin in that series. When Anna lost the child and failed to garner a conviction in the Cambias' rape, she kissed David goodbye and disappeared from Pine Valley and the the soap scene.
Anna drops in on Robin and Patrick often, one time literally via parachute, when not on assignment with the World Service Bureau. In the summer of 2007, she was visiting Port Charles during the same time as international rocker Eli Love was in town for a concert. He landed in General Hospital in need of brain surgery and everyone marveled at how much he looked like Patrick's father, Dr. Noah Drake. Anna convinced Noah to perform the concert, as Eli Love. In the process, she and Noah had an affair, much to the disgust of Robin and Patrick. Once she went back to the business of being a spy, she had an affair with rocker Eli Love. During the summer of 2008, Anna visited Robin and supported her during her pregnancy. When Eli came to town and learned that his hot lover was about to become a grandmother, he ran scared. Noah Drake, however, was there to support Anna and their affair rekindled briefly. As Robin's pregnancy progressed, as did wedding plans with Patrick, Anna and Robin's father Robert came together once again.
Anna returned once again in 2012 as part of Patrick's Valentine's Day present to Robin.

In the sanctuary, Elizabeth hugs Robin. Anna and Mac pull her away from Epiphany and Lucy to allow her a moment. Robin intends to stay and wait for Patrick. She thought the reunion would be easy but she has no idea what will happen. While Robin thanks Epiphany for getting Patrick through everything, Emma asks Mac if her mommy has to go back to heaven soon. When Robin steals a moment with Sam, Anna overhears Robin confide that her parents took care of the man who took Jason from her. Anna goes to Emma and explains that Robin is not an angel. Someone was playing a mean trick on them. Robin talks to Lucy, who worries what Robin thought about the nurses' ball when she learns she saw it. In the bride's room, Sabrina's certain it's over for her, Patrick and Emma. Felix assures her that she doesn't know that. Patrick interrupts and Felix leaves. Sabrina can't imagine there is much to say…Robin's alive. A lot has changed in two years; he doesn't know if they can go back to the way things were. Sabrina asks if they'd have gotten together if Robin never left. Patrick shakes his head and Sabrina says, "We're through." She removes her rings and tries to make Patrick take them. He won't and they both cry as he confesses that he loves her, too. Sabrina exclaims that he can love both of them but he can't have both of them. Patrick's not sorry that Robin's alive. Sabrina isn't either and tells him his wife is waiting. Outside, Brad finds Felix trying to hear what is going on inside. Brad tries to help and they stare affectionately at each other with their ears to the door. Patrick steps out and tells Felix that Sabrina needs him. Felix reminds her that Patrick didn't say it was over. Together they'll make it through this. Elsewhere, alone with Elizabeth, Robin confides how Emma introduced Sabrina as her new mommy. She realizes Patrick loves Sabrina and worries he won't come back. Patrick enters the sanctuary and hugs Emma. Mommy being alive is the best news. Everyone leaves and Robin kisses Patrick before asking how Sabrina is. He knows she's hurt but she's strong. Robin waits to hear what they talked about and is upset that he's confused after how she fought to get back. He agrees with Anna that they don't need to figure it all out tonight. He wants her to come home and Robin says, "No." Patrick doesn't understand. Anna returns with Emma who asks if Robin's coming home. When she pauses, Anna thinks it’s a good idea for Robin and Emma to come to her place. Robin and Patrick both tell each, "I love you so much." Patrick cries alone in the church. Later, Felix tells Brad that Sabrina's missing.
Duke's thrilled when Anna arrives at her office but wonders why she or Robert didn't go with Robin to the church. Anna claims they stayed behind to take care of Faison. Duke thinks he's downstairs but Anna says that she left him with Robert. She doesn't want to talk about Faison anymore. Duke's ready to celebrate now that Robin's home and is sure Derek will allow him a few more days off. Anna realizes Duke doesn't know and tells him that Derek is Julian Jerome. Duke threatens to kill him but Anna won't allow him to go after Julian now that they're all together again. She leaves and Duke gets a call from Sonny. He wants to talk.
At the church, Patrick says, "I do." Before Lucy pronounces them man and wife, Emma yells, "Mommy," and runs to Robin who scoops her up in her arms. Patrick and Sabrina look on in shock. Elizabeth can't believe it's Robin. Lucy exclaims, "It's a miracle." Felicia stops Mac from interrupting Robin's reunion with Emma. Patrick stares and whispers, "Robin," and slowly walks to her. Sabrina stands at the altar, speechless. Robin's friends can't believe it, but smiles sweep across their faces as Robin explains to Patrick how someone took her away. She tried to make it home to him. Now she finds he's getting married. Patrick glances back at Sabrina who's tearing up. Felix wishes he could tell Sabrina that this isn't happening. Robin confirms that she called both he and Emma once. She was Nikolas' nanny, the sad lady who couldn't tell them she was alive because it was too dangerous. Patrick kisses her as Sabrina falls to the floor and quietly sobs. Robin encourages Patrick to follow Sabrina when she rushes off – she knows that Patrick loves Sabrina. Patrick doesn't want to lose Robin again. Robin promises he won't. He leaves and Robin hugs Mac and Felicia before Anna arrives. Alone with Felix in the dressing room, Sabrina cries but says she's happy for Emma. Felix asks her to say it's not fair as she realizes Patrick will never be hers. Felix is holding her when Patrick arrives.
