About Us
Shawna graduated from Veterinary School at Texas A&M in May 2003.  She is currently working in Rockwall, TX at Stonebridge Veterinary Hospital. Shawna's medical interests are in canine reproduction and exotic animal medicine and facilitated her interests by participating in canine reproductive physiology research at Texas A&M University. 

Shawna bought her first ridgeback in 1995. Although purchased as a pet at the time, he was what started her passion for the breed. These events eventually led Shawna to purchase the foundation for her kennel - Kalyan.

Shawna's love for the breed has led her and her kennel to obtain many accomplishments and has consistently ranked her as one of the top Owner/Handlers within the Ridgeback breed.
