Dr. Toom has dedicated over five decades to her profession, with the last 25 years spent enriching the minds of graduate students at Touro University as an associate professor.

Dr. Toom's commitment to her students and her passion for psychology have made her a respected figure among her peers and students alike. She has been recognized with an outstanding teacher award in Texas, an accolade that highlights her dedication to education and excellence in teaching.

Her work extends beyond teaching; she is an active participant in academic conferences, contributes articles to professional journals, and authors chapters in monographs on psychology and education. In addition to her work with Touro University, Dr. Toom has served as an editor and reviewer for the Journal of Education for many years, where she ensured the quality and relevance of published research in education. Now, she contributes her expertise to the Journal of Literature and Librarianship as a member of the board of editors for the International Academic Forum (IAFOR). This role allows her to influence the direction of research and discussion within the fields of literature and literary criticism on an international scale.

In the psychology and literary criticism areas, Dr. Toom has achieved a high level of recognition. Her unique approach to analyzing science fiction through psychological methods has distinguished her work in both fields. Dr. Toom is particularly proud of her articles that apply psychological theories to analyze fictional literature and art—a testament to her innovative cross-disciplinary approach.

Dr. Toom's expertise goes beyond the social sciences and humanities. She studied computer science before transitioning to psychology, which has enriched her research methodology and analytical skills. She was a pioneer of distant education at Touro University, New York. She created a virtual psychological practicum in which students study psychological theories in dialogue with a computer system.

Dr. Toom's academic achievements include a master's degree in computer science, a master's degree in social psychology, and a PhD in industrial psychology. These degrees were instrumental in shaping her career path from general and social psychology to educational psychology.

Beyond academia, Dr. Toom volunteers with various nonprofit organizations, reflecting her commitment to civic engagement and community service. Outside of her career and volunteer work, Dr. Toom is a mother to one daughter and a grandmother to one grandson.
