She received her juris doctor from Columbia Law School in New York in 1999 and went on to work for Davis Polk & Wardwell, a New York law firm.[2] After working for the Davis Polk & Wardwell New York office for two years, Tiffany moved to the Davis Polk & Wardwell London, England office in 2001 to continue her career as a lawyer. Tiffany has also attended National Chengchi University in Taipei, Taiwan and University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa.[3]

In 2005, Williamson appeared on the celebrity poker chat show Heads Up with Richard Herring to discuss her love for the game. That same year she was ranked 99 on the 2005 Money List and 10th on the Women's "All-Time" Money List. Her win made her the 15th highest money finisher ever for a female in the United Kingdom.[4]

As of 2008, her total live tournament winnings exceed $490,000.[5]
