Conflict of interest statement: I have made 200,000+ edits and I have not been paid for any of them. In 2016, I retired from DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. after 26 years of employment; I have not edited articles regarding the parent organization or subsidiaries. In 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation hired me as a 3-month paid contractor for the Gender Diversity Mapping project.
