She won the NCAA one-meter title in 1995 and had a runner-up finish in 1994 after placing third in 1993. On the three-meter board, she was fifth in 1993 and 1994 and third in both 1995 and 1996.
She set the conference three-meter record with a score of 500.80 in 1996 and that ranks as the best winning score in conference history although her record was broken in the preliminaries. She also has the best 10-dive score in conference history on the one-meter board.
A corporate exercise management major, Toth returned to her hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan in 1996 and began a career in coaching and fitness. She was an assistant age group coach with the Regina Diving Club for two years, then a condition coach with the Queen City Gymnastics Club for two years.

Since 2004, she has been a recreation consultant with "Saskatchewan in motion". That provincial-wide movement is a revolutionary approach to increasing physical activity for health benefits. The group conducts research, assists in community developments, grants funds, offers programs, raises public awareness, develops resources and facilitates changes in social and physical environments for more physically active lifestyles. For four years, her focus was on workplace wellness. More recently, she has concentrated on physical literacy and increasing sport participation.
