Early in her career, Brasseur competed with Pascal Courchesne. They placed 5th at the 1985 Skate America. She started skating with Lloyd Eisler in 1987. They won five Canadian pairs championships, the 1993 World Championships, and bronze medals at the 1992 Winter Olympics and the 1994 Winter Olympics. They retired in 1994.
Brasseur and Eisler teamed up with Lou-Anne Brosseau (Hunt) in 1992 and formed a company known as B.B.E. Productions Inc. Together the group planned and organized professional figure skating events across Canada. Their main goal was to raise awareness and funds for the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada, who named the duo National Spokespersons in September 1992. B.B.E. Productions Inc. has won several awards, producing more than 25 shows and raising more than $250,000.00 in awareness and sponsorship for the charity. In the years of operation (1992–2006), B.B.E. also granted several wishes to children suffering from life-threatening illnesses.
She co-wrote a book, Brasseur & Eisler : To Catch a Dream in 1996 and the follow-up book Brasseur & Eisler: The Professional Years.
