From her efforts, Ms. Connell has earned consistent top rankings and endorsements from her peers, including five-star peer reviews on Martindale-Hubbell and being selected as an Indiana "Super Lawyer" for multiple years. She has also received numerous testimonials and referrals from her satisfied clients, and she finds great reward in being able to help so many in her area during some of the most difficult and uncertain times of their lives.

A 1998 graduate of the Indiana University's Kelley School of Business, Ms. Connell obtained her bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a minor in Aerospace Studies. After graduation, Ms. Connell was commissioned an officer in the United States Air Force and obtained her Master's Degree of Public Administration from Troy State University in 2000. Upon deciding to pursue her legal career, she obtained her Juris Doctorate from Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in 2007. She is admitted to practice and has practiced before most Indiana state courts as well as before the U.S. District Court for the Southern and Northern Districts of Indiana.
