O'Connell, R-East Williston, is a graduate of Flushing Hospital and Medical Center School of Nursing, St. Joseph's College in Patchogue, and St. John's University School of Law. O'Connell served on the state assembly for eight years before becoming Hempstead Town Clerk. She is married with one son.
