Today, Nova has grown to become an industry leader and innovator of mobility, bathroom safety and independent living products such as beautiful canes, hot walkers and stylish mobility bags.  Nova is on a mission to unleash the power and potential in millions of physically challenged people and determined to shift the fear, stigma and discrimination her customers face; reconnecting our human bond that all people deserve to live and thrive.  In the past year, Nova has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes and Fortune – naming Chen as one of the “Ten Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs.” Chen believes in a happily unbalanced and chaotic life and is also a shark advocate, avid diver, environmentalist and author of “Confessions of the Walker Stalker.”
