The editor of Condé Nast’s health and fitness title is stepping down, according to a statement on her Instagram, and will join the tech giant’s editorial team as head of special projects and digital platforms. 

Kylstra came to Self five years ago as executive digital director and was promoted to the top editorial job the following year when Condé Nast shuttered the print part of the title. The publication was nominated for six National Magazine Awards during her tenure. 

“Thank you to Anna Wintour for your support and guidance, and to Condé Nast for entrusting me with this incredible brand,” Kylstra said on Instagram. 

Kylstra is one of several editors to jump to tech in recent years, joining former Marie Claire editor Aya Kanai, now at Pinterest, and former Elle Canada editor Vanessa Craft, now at TikTok. 

Condé Nast has seen several other editor exits in recent months, too. Lindsay Peoples Wagner is heading to New York Magazine’s The Cut this month, and Wired editor Nick Thompson joined The Atlantic as CEO in December. Abroad, editors of Vogue Spain and Vogue Germany also left shortly before the new year. Currently, the publisher has an opening still at Vogue China, with Margaret Zhang rumoured to be the top contender.
