Q: If you weren’t working for Martins Dental Partners, what would your dream job be?
A: Professional golfer. I could work outside, travel to beautiful places, and get paid to play golf. I would play on weekdays and, if things go well, play a little more on weekends.
Q: What is one unique skill that you’re proud of?
A: I make my own pizza dough and sauce. The Konefal household takes pizza very seriously and we have a recipe book that includes our attempts to create the best homemade pie.
Q: What’s your favorite inspirational quote?
A: “Don’t give up, don’t ever give up” – Jim Valvano, Championship coach and leader of young men on the basketball court. He is forever an inspiration to all battling cancer and medical hardships.
Q: If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?
A: Vineyards in Italy. I’m told that red wine is good for my heart. I would love to see the sights, drink the wine (especially Chianti Classico), and live like the locals.
Q: What are you currently reading?
A: Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin. This book is a prequel to all of the events that occur in his “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. I was bit by HBO’s “Game of Thrones” bug in dental school and remain fascinated with the series. I am amazed by the characters, plot, and Martin’s willingness to upset readers and viewers with diabolical twists.
