Our Doctor

Melissa Bourland

Melissa Bourland

Optometrist

Dr. Bourland graduated with honors from Illinois College of Optometry in 2017. She has nearly 10 years of experience in the eye care industry. Her love for eyecare began at a young age and grew as she worked as an optician at a small private practice while obtaining her undergraduate degree in biology at Purdue University. Since graduating optometry school she has enjoyed seeing patients of all ages and demographics. She is passionate about meeting a wide variety of eyecare needs including prescribing glasses and contacts, emergency eyecare, pediatrics and disease management.

In 2020, Dr. Bourland and her husband Michael decided to open their own optometry office in Chesterton, IN. They decided to utilize Michael’s skills for business management and combine that with Dr. Bourland’s passion for eyecare to bring a family oriented small business to the Duneland community. Community involvement is a top priority for this new small business.

A lifetime resident of Northwest Indiana, Dr. Bourland recently moved to Chesterton from Dyer, IN. Outside of work Dr. Bourland enjoys spending time with her large extended family. She also enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband, 2 year old daughter, Autumn and American Eskimo dog, Bella. She’s excited to experience all that the Dunes has to offer.

Mike Bourland

Mike Bourland

Business Manager

Mike was raised in Hammond, IN and graduated from Morton High School in 2006. This is where he and Dr. Bourland met. After high school, Mike obtained an Information Technology degree from DeVry University.  Soon after graduation, Mike was promoted to an IT position at his place of work, an automotive manufacturing plant located in Chicago.  

One year after working in IT, Mike was promoted again to Automation Programmer/Maintenance Supervisor and would hold this position for the next 6 years.  During this time, he went on to obtain a degree in Business Management, completed in 2017. The automotive plant Mike worked at for nearly 10 years, unexpectedly closed its location in 2019, permanently.  This unfortunate situation gave Michael and his wife the opportunity and influence needed to become small business owners. They are both excited to serve in the community they live in. 

In 2020, along with Dr. Bourland, he accomplished a life-long dream of owning his own business. His business management background has proven invaluable to Duneland Family Eyecare. Outside of work Mike enjoys working out, taking his boat out on the lake, and spending time outdoors with his family.
