What Are Our Goals?

Creating, supporting, and maintaining communities of acknowledgement and celebration in order for LGBTQIA2S+ community members to flourish.

How We Plan to Get There:

Project Bravery strives to create safe, compassionate spaces of open expression for members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community. We pursue more equitable inclusion and celebration of this community in Lincoln County and beyond. Project Bravery also promotes and encourages LGBTQIA2S+ visibility as well as participation in and leadership of the broader community. Additionally, Bravery builds equitable resources and partnerships in order to best address the needs of the LGBTQIA2S+ community of Lincoln County.

Robb Davis, MEd


Program Manager

Robb has lived on the Oregon Coast since 2017, but he has always considered the Northwest home.  Born in northern California, his family moved briefly to Lewiston, Idaho, when he was three before settling across the Snake River in Clarkston, Washington.  He earned his master’s degree and teaching certificate from Western Washington University, then decided to teach overseas -- in Central America, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia -- for a decade or so.  With a calendar featuring similar school breaks and holidays as the U.S., Robb was able to experience many fascinating places and cultures.  He enjoyed the ruins at Petra, in Jordan, so much, he visited three separate times!

After returning to the U.S., Robb wasn’t sure he wanted to continue teaching. Then the pandemic occurred, and he pursued a couple of his other passions: espresso and books.  Through volunteer work with the first Newport Pride celebration in September 2022, he was made aware of Project Bravery.  He was hired in January 2023, and he continues to enjoy a challenging job with much variety.

When he is not working, Robb enjoys spending time with his partner, going to live music events, hiking, road trips to places in Oregon (and beyond) he's never been (or likes so much he wants to go again), perusing locally owned books shops, enjoying espresso drinks, and scouring the beaches for agates.

Parker Preston

Parker Preston, MA, QMHP, CADC III


Mental Health Therapist

Parker moved to the coast to join Project Bravery based on his passion & excitement for working with LGBTQIA2S+ youth, emerging adults, and families. Previously, he was employed as a Lead Co-Occurring Therapist for a Portland, Oregon based non-profit agency. He shares that his transition  to the helping profession started in 2007 when working as a Case Manager at an LGBTQIA2S+ transitional living program (TLP) which supported foster care youth in Clearwater, Florida.

When it comes to therapy, Parker believes you are the author of your story. He hopes to create a space where you feel brave, respected, and welcome to explore your experience. Parker also believes that healing occurs when insight and awareness strengthen resilience while in therapy services. Parker is a Qualified Mental Health Professional (QMHP-C) & Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor (CADC III) through the Mental Health and Addiction Board of Oregon (MHACBO), a National Certified Counselor (NCC) through the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC), and a Certified Trauma Professional (CTP) with a master’s degree in counseling, specialization in addictions, from Lewis and Clark College, Graduate School of Counseling and Education.

When not at work, Parker enjoys domestic and international travel, culinary adventures, time at the beach, and walks with George, his rescue dog from Hawaii.
