Isabelle grew up in Quebec where she started skating at the age of only 3. She decided to start speed skating when she saw her brother train for hockey. At 12 years old, Isabelle took the road to Montreal to train with the best speed skaters in Canada who had the same dream as her : participate in the Olympic Games. Six months after becoming National Champion in 2009, an opponent tried to pass her during a race and accidentally cut her in the groin with her skates. This injury had a huge mental impact on her. Even though she was scared of getting injured again, she qualified for the 2011 Canada Games in Halifax, where she earned a silver medal in the team relay in addition to rank herself in the Top 10 in each distance. She then moved to Calagary in 2013 to be able to train with the best athletes and coach in the world. She is still living there today and works very hard to earn a spot on the Canadian speed skating team. In addition to her intense training, Isabelle is pursuing distance studies with Laval University in Sustainable development and food science and technology. She has several targets in her sights:
- Earn a spot on the Canadian speed skating team
- Qualify for the Pyenongchang Olympic games in South Korea, 2018.
- Run a half marathon
