Maneet holds the unique distinction of being the only journalist at Forbes to also be an alumnus of the celebrated Forbes Under 30 list for media.

Prior to CNBC, she was a part of the Wall Street Journal’s Money & Investing team and began her career on Wall Street at the age of seventeen working at Citigroup—which is where she earned the nickname “Wall Street Maneet.”
