She also led an initiative to establish early response mental health teams for local municipal courts.

She has served as an adjunct professor at Ursuline College, where she created and taught courses on Civil Rights Law and Women and the Law. She was also a frequent instructor for the Ohio Judicial College, where she helped create and taught continuing judicial education course for other judges.

Judge Toler is still actively engaged in both local and national initiatives to prevent domestic violence through her work as a board member of Bloom365. She also supports The Whole Brother Mission, an organization designed to address the emotional and familial wellbeing of Black men.
