​​​Chris Lippe

​​Principal and Managing Director of SP of SCC, Inc.

I have most recently worked for Standard Process as a business development   consultant in Southern California. Primarily working with practitioners on implementing nutrition as an important segment to their practice, as it supports their patients in getting well and generating additional revenue to their practice.  In my role as Managing Director of SP of South Coastal California Consultants I look forward having my firm assist you in providing solutions to your nutritional needs.

Ted Haun

Business & Clinical Consultant

A San Diego Native from childhood on, I have always had a fascination with anatomy and physiology and how the body reacts to nutrition and exercise. As a teenager, I was soon working in gyms and within a few years, began my first forays into nutritional consultation. From there, I transitioned to nutritional supplement sales, commencing a 20 year career in sales for various health related industries. I moved to the pharmaceutical industry, enjoyed it immensely and after roughly a decade of awarded sales performance, returned to my primary passion of helping physicians offer their patients lasting and healthy natural alternatives as a Certified Wellness Consultant and Lifestyle Educator. I firmly believe nature offers the first, best therapies to successfully reverse chronic disease, and for that reason, I am ecstatic to be associated with Standard Process and greatly look forward to helping practitioners implement the Standard Process philosophy and products into their practices.
