Shaunna O’Connell is a Taunton native and very proud to be raising her own family in her hometown. She has been married to her husband, Ted, for 13 years, and their greatest joy is raising their two children, Ashton and Riley.

Shaunna and her family enjoy volunteering their time in the community in many different ways, whether it be in helping to organize a community event or being active through their church.

The O’Connells are a close-knit family that love to play together. Their favorite summer pastime is vacationing on their boat, where they can "get away from it all." The whole family loves to kayak, go tubing, sailing, and explore the Elizabeth Islands. Together they collect beautiful sea glass on the beaches.

At home they love to play outside and go hiking in the woods behind their house. In the winter, Ted makes a skating rink for the kids, and he also takes everyone for sleigh rides in the woods with his quad.
