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.

Duke comes into Anna’s office and confronts her over what she did to Faison. The two argue, Duke feels they both lied to the other and they should call it even and try and move on. Anna, however, feels what she did is not comparable to what Duke did. She fears that Duke is too in love with the life Sonny leads, and she doesn’t think she can continue their relationship. Duke reveals that he is taking over Sonny’s business while Sonny is in prison, so they’ll be in a relationship whether she likes it or not. He then walks out.
Alexis calls Sam to say she has an emergency with a client and can't make it to the family dinner. Meanwhile, Anna is in her office going over the reports of Faison's death. Alexis enters and requests Julian's release. Anna doesn't see why she's sticking her neck out for him but agrees to sign the paperwork. As Alexis bustles out, Sloane shows up to lay into her about Faison again. They bicker and he warns that she will need to build a great defense. Kyle tells her how hard all of this is for him, but she'll be going away for a long time. After Anna is left to mull that over, Duke arrives at her door. Later, Julian is released. Alexis insists she did this for Luke. She insists on going to see him alone but Julian thinks they need to do it together.
