At the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games, Anna made her debut for ParalympicsGB where she ranked 6th in the Slalom.

Since then, Anna has continued to train and compete, narrowly missing out on a medal at the 2011 IPC Alpine Skiing World Championships in Sestriere, Italy, when she finished 4th in the Giant Slalom.
