Madelyn Gould is a preternaturally sunny person. She has a broad, easy smile, a charming Brooklyn accent and an infectious laugh. When she talks about herself, she often starts with the personal: She is the mother of three sons — identical twins who are 35, and one who is 27. She is the grandmother of a 2-year-old boy, and has been married to her husband, a pediatric neurologist, for 38 years.
