Meet the Staff


 Carlos Flores, B.A.

I am a first-year graduate student in the M.A program in Community Counseling at Montclair State University. Prior to attending Montclair State University, I received my Bachelor's degree in Sociology from the University of South Florida and worked as a grassroots community organizer in Tampa, FL. I currently am a Peer Educator with Montclair State University's LGBTQ Center. I enjoy working with diverse students and facilitating discussions regarding culture, diversity, and identity. I am excited to work as part of the Mediation Resource Staff and help develop programs that will benefit students on campus. My areas of interest include multicultural issues in counseling and LGBT issues.


Claudia Guevara, B.A.                               

I am a first year graduate student at Montclair State University in the M.A. program for Counseling in Higher Education/ Student Affairs.  In 2012, I earned my B.A. in Psychology and Sociology from Seton Hall University, became an AmeriCorps Member, and dedicated a year of service mentoring high school students in Paterson, NJ. Most recently, I worked for Montclair State’s Upward Bound Project and lead youth development workshops for first-generation college bound students. My passions include working with minority students and promoting diversity in higher education. I am grateful to be a part of the MRC Staff helping students mediate conflicts and promoting a positive living experience on campus.

I am a second-year graduate student in the School Counseling program at Montclair State University.

After I graduated from UD, I joined Teach For America and taught 5th and 6th grade math for two years in Baltimore, Maryland. I am excited to work with students at Montclair State and help them resolve conflicts as well as provide fun programs in the residence halls!
