As a graduate assistant, she taught undergraduate psychology courses, participated in several research projects, and attended conferences that allowed her to learn more about the field of Applied Behavior Analysis.

After obtaining her graduate education, Vasuda completed her BCBA fieldwork hours in Huntsville, Alabama. She successfully obtained her BCBA certification in Fall 2016 and began working as a Clinician in Augusta, Georgia.
In early 2017, Vasuda returned to Huntsville to develop an ABA program that focuses on generalization and natural environment training for clients with autism and related developmental disabilities.
