Toni Ann, is from Maryland, USA November 20, 1995 to parents, Tony and Marlene Williams; however, both her parents are Jamaican and as such she is permitted to represent Jamaica. She is currently attending University of California, Berkeley and is a member of the Golden Bears gymnastics team.
Williams represented Jamaica at her second World Championships in 2013, in Antwerp, Belgium.
