Hosafros began her Game and Fish career in 1974 as publications secretary. She was promoted to publications assistant in 1976 and again to publications coordinator in 1984. At that position she was in charge of the majority of printing, including regulations, books, posters and application booklets. In 1995 she became editorial assistant for the publications section serving as the business manager of Wyoming Wildlifemagazine, Wyoming Wildlife News and Wild Times. She also produced the Game and Fish calendar, designed brochures and served on the board of the Association of Conservation Information. In August 2013, she was transferred to her position as lands management specialist.
Retired Wyoming Wildlife editor Chris Madson, who supervised Hosafros for the majority of her career, said that in addition to her duties with Wyoming Wildlife, she handled some of Game and Fish’s most important publications over the years including regulations and hunter application packets.
“She has a keen insight into designing a wildlife publication that captivates a reader and is still easy to follow and understand,” Madson said. “You won’t find anyone who knows more about printing and printers, grammar, spelling and proofreading. She was an asset to Wyoming Wildlife and the Game and Fish Department.”
Hosafros is a Cheyenne native and a Central High graduate. She has taken journalism, business and management courses at Laramie County Community College and Regis University.
