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.

At Patrick’s, Anna demands Patrick walk her through why Robin was at the clinic. He tells her about the Victor’s plan to revive Jason, Stavros and Helena, and that Victor threatened to kill Jason if Robin didn’t go along. The protocol didn’t work and now Jason is dead. Anna shares that Stavros was alive, so they wonder what Helena’s status is. They need to find Robin first and Patrick uses Skype. Surprisingly, Robin answers and tells them she’s in Paris. She left the clinic and her research a few weeks ago and apologizes for scaring them. Patrick is relieved she’s safe and Anna urges her to come home. Robin can’t. She only makes the wrong decisions and doesn’t trust herself anymore. She needs distance, is sending the divorce papers and asks them to trust that she’s doing the best for Emma. Later, Anna gets word from the WSB that Helena’s body was found, so Robin’s story checks out. Patrick tells Anna that Robin seems like a different person.
At home, Patrick gets Emma ready for bed. She wants to sleep with him and tells him she overheard him talking with Elizabeth about the divorce and wonders if maybe Robin really wants to come home instead. Anna comes by and can see Emma is sad. She gives Emma a new book, Matilda, and offers to tuck her in and read her the first chapter. Emma agrees and hugs Patrick goodnight. When Anna returns Patrick wants to talk about the case he and Sam are working on. Sam shows up and tells them both that Sonny doesn’t think Luke is responsible. Anna has a hard time believing it but tells them Luke is the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation. Sam thanks Anna, then leaves. Later, Anna tells Patrick Crichton Clark is gone and that it involved the Cassadines. Patrick is freaked and tells Anna that Robin has been living and working at the clinic.
