Autumn had worked as a bartender, model and an actress, and after graduating accepted a role as a management consultant.

Autumn met Peter Phillips at the Canadian Grand Prix in 2003. She moved her career over to the UK, working for an American computing firm, and moved in with Peter Phillips and the pair announced their engagement ion 28th July 2007.

Autumn had changed career path again and worked as a personal assistant to Sir Michael Parkinson.
