A Fairfield County native, Mannetti has called New Caanan home for much of her life.  She comes to Sacred Heart after spending the past four seasons as an assistant coach at Hofstra University on Krista Kilburn-Steveskey's staff.  While at Hofstra, Mannetti helped guide the Pride to a 72-55 record as well as a pair of appearances in the WNIT.

She helped develop several players who went on to receive accolades from the Colonial Athletic Conference (CAA) including Candace Bond who was named the 2012-13 CAA Defensive Player of the Year.  She assisted with the development of All-American Shante Evans, who was named to the 2011 USA Basketball Women's Pan American Games team.  As a recruiter, Hofstra's 2011 class ranked as the sixth best mid-major recruiting class in the nation by ESPN Hoopgurlz.

Prior to arriving at Hofstra, Mannetti served as the head girls' varsity basketball coach at Green Farms Academy in Westport, CT.  In 2008-09 she led the team to a spot in the Fairchester Athletic Association (FAA) postseason tournament for the first time in school history. In her five seasons with Greens Farm, she developed the program from junior varsity status in 2004-05 to leading the Dragons to the playoffs in her final campaign.

A veteran of the AAU scene, Mannetti served as the head coach of the U-18 girls' team for the CT Future Stars AAU Basketball program from 2004 through 2008.  Mannetti has also spent considerable time working with the Five-Star Basketball in a variety of positions since 1999.  In addition, she previously worked an internship with the New York Knicks in their basketball operations department and worked as an event staffer for the New York Liberty.

A three-sport athlete in college, Mannetti graduated from Concordia College in Bronxville, NY in 2001 with a degree in business administration. She played volleyball, basketball and softball at Concordia and served as the team captain for both the volleyball and basketball teams.
