Isabelle Brassuer first teamed up with partner Lloyd Eisler to compete in pairs figure skating in 1987, which began a partnership that would last for 17 years and see many successes. Together they were runners-up at their first Canadian Championship together in 1988, in addition to placing 7th at the World Championships and 9th at the 1988 Winter Olympics. The following year they were 7th again at the World Championships, but took the Canadian Championships and would never again fail to see the podium at a Canadian, World or Olympic Championship. The duo took second place at the 1990 World Championships, but slid to third at their national tournament. They regained the Canadian title the following year and held it through 1994. During that time, they won two bronze medals at the Winter Olympics in 1992 and 1994, as well as two more silver medals (1991 and 1994), one bronze (1992), and one gold (1993) at the World Championships.

Brassuer and Eisler retired from active competition in 1994, but continued their professional relationship through other channels. Along with a woman by the name of Lou-Anne Brosseau, they formed B.B.E. Productions in 1992, which organized charity figure skating events across Canada to benefit the Children’s Wish Foundation. The organization won several awards, put on over 25 shows, and raised more than a quarter of a million dollars until it ceased operating in 2006. After their second Olympic medal, the duo was awarded the Meritorious Service Decoration in 1994 and was inducted into the Canada Sports Hall of Fame and the Canadian Figure Skating Hall of Fame in 1996 and 2000 respectively. In 1996 she wrote the book “Brasseur & Eisler: To Catch a Dream” and later followed it up with “Brasseur & Eisler: The Professional Years”. In 2009 she appeared on the Canadian figure skating reality show “Battle of the Blades”, but was voted off the show in the second episode, along with her partner and former NHL player Glenn Anderson.
