Does it matter if my AdWords certification is tied to my personal account and I conduct adwords business with another google account?

Hi Jennifer

Welcome to the community

Both will work, but I would prefer as you say, your personal account for certification, an extra google account for AdWords. This will give you more flexibility in the future should you want to become a google partner, use an mcc, ...

To make things a bit more practical, you can grant your personal google account (administrative) access to the AdWords account. You can do this in the AdWords account -> My Account tab -> Account access
