Dominique Cettina


Dominique is currently a senior studying psychology and forensics at Siena College.

Dominique's passion for solving mysteries and helping people find justice and answers is the driving force behind her interest in crime.

From a young age, she was captivated by the intricate puzzles of the world around her, whether it was a thrilling detective novel or a historical enigma.

This lifelong fascination naturally led her to the world of genetic genealogy, where science and human stories intersect.

She believes that every strand of DNA holds a story waiting to be told and that each mystery solved can bring peace, closure, and justice to those in search of answers. Dominique combines her interest with a compassionate approach, guiding clients through the often emotional journey of discovery.
