Purdy will attend the University of Western Ontario from September 2014, studying social sciences. Purdy started skating at age four as a hockey player and switched to figure skating at age seven. In May 2007, Purdy teamed up with Michael Marinaro to train in pairs.
The pair placed eighth in The Hague at their first World Junior Championships.
The pair took silver at the 2013 World Junior Championships in Milan, behind Haven Denney / Brandon Frazier. In September 2013, Purdy/Marinaro and their coaches moved their training base from Strathroy to Komoka.
The pair appeared at two senior Grand Prix events, the 2013 Skate America and 2013 Skate Canada International, finishing eighth at both. After placing fifth at the 2014 Canadians, they were assigned to the 2014 Four Continents and came in sixth.
On May 27, 2014, they announced the end of their partnership and Purdy retired from elite competition.
