Let’s get to know each other.

Three Crowns is a branding and digital media partner that helps launch and scale companies impacting the world through financial technology and advice.

We pride ourselves on creating growth-minded campaigns that blur the lines of traditional marketing silos in favor of custom content and engaging websites that shine a light on the modern, human experience. Some call it magic – we call it, simply, listening.

Our team knows your business. We’re practitioners who understand that impactful marketing is more than just one “big idea.” It takes a long-term strategy that scales through both traditional and nontraditional media.

Most of all, we love connecting with people. To us, that’s what it’s all about.

Johnny Sandquist Founder and CEO


Before founding Three Crowns, I went from being a high school English teacher to a content writer at Orion Advisor Services to a founding member and Content Director at Mineral Interactive. As the CEO at Three Crowns, I lead the overall strategic direction for the campaigns we execute, and most importantly, hire the best and brightest team members to bring those ideas to life. I love helping WealthTech companies refine their message and build products that are helpful to advisors. I was born and raised in Omaha and love life here with my wife, three children and dog. When I’m not working, I write poetry, play guitar, and plan for my next outdoor adventure with my family.

Amber Froendt Operations Manager


I’m Amber Froendt and I studied project management at Bellevue University in Bellevue, Nebraska. I was born and raised in Omaha. As the Operations Manager, I help manage the day-to-day workflow of our clients’ projects and keep everything on track and organized. The best part of my job is watching a client’s project come to life right before our eyes, from the very first idea to the execution and results. In my free time, I like to work out, and I have a toy Australian shepherd named Stella!

Justine Young

Justine Young Digital Marketing Manager


I’m Justine, a creative writer from small-town Iowa. I started out at “Omaha Magazine,” where I wrote about everything from local artists to where you can buy the best fried pickle in the metro. As a content writer, I translate financial jargon into compelling copy for financial advisors and fintech companies. My perfect day would include eating dinner with the queen (i.e., Lisa Vanderpump) and the cast of the live action Scooby Doo movies. Also the dinner would consist of only ice cream. Currently, I like to spend my time playing board games, hanging out with my family, and watching all types of reality TV.

Serena Hackett Graphic Designer


Hi! I’m Serena Hackett, the Graphic Designer here at Three Crowns. I’ve always had a creative spark, but it wasn’t until my second year at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln that I decided to turn my side passion for design into a career. I love working through a design project and seeing how the visuals evolve from the first iteration to the end, and some of my favorite design projects center around branding, illustration, and layout. Outside of work, you can find me exploring Omaha’s thrift stores or trying out new restaurants around town with my husband. I also love animals (especially cats!) and enjoy traveling to new destinations whenever I get the chance. Another fun fact about me: I’m an Omaha native – and I was born in a car right in front of Bergan Mercy hospital!
