35 year old female Canadian veterinarian looking for a furnished flat on the Victoria line or near Finsbury Park

Hello there! I am a 35 year old Canadian veterinarian teaching in academia, currently working in London at the Royal Veterinary College. I'm based at the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals in Potter's Bar, but prefer to live in London and commute out. I'm looking for a furnished place in North, Central or East London that has convenient transit connections on the Great Northern train line to Potters Bar; Finsbury Park or something close to any stations on the Victoria line would be ideal, but other potential areas include King's Cross/St Pancras, Granary Square, Russell Square, Old Street/Moorgate, Essex Road, Highbury & Islington, Tufnell Park/Holloway, etc.

I am looking for a furnished place from fall 2019 for a minimum of one year; move-in date can be flexible and I could do something as early as September or as late as January.

I live alone, am a nonsmoker, and am very quiet and meticulously clean - hobbies include reading, cooking and watching movies. I've had great luck with previous Sabbatical Homes rentals so am posting something here before going to the letting agents. Hope to hear from you soon! :)

Sarah graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (University of Saskatchewan) in 2008, and originally hails from Kamloops, British Columbia. She completed a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at NYC Veterinary Specialists, and then a residency in small animal internal medicine at the Animal Medical Center, both in New York City, NY. She attained Diplomate Status with the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Small Animal) in 2012. She spent a year studying Japanese tea ceremony as part of the Midorikai intensive scholarship program in Kyoto, Japan from 2012-2013, and then did a short maternity cover in Small Animal Internal Medicine at Massey University (New Zealand) before entering private specialty practice in San Francisco, California in 2013. Sarah relocated to England to work at the Royal Veterinary College in June 2016, and has remained on staff to continue with clinical teaching in the areas of Small Animal Medicine and Oncology. Hobbies include Japanese tea ceremony and wine and sake studies and teaching.

Sarah Stewart was a superb tenant, whom I would recommend without the slightest reserve. The rent was always paid on time and in full, and the property was lovingly cared for. I came home to find everything in impeccable order. She was also very agreeable to the other residents of the building, being quiet, friendly, polite to all and beautifully behaved at all times. Sarah was quick to communicate any problems so I could take care of them right away. She is a genuinely lovely person, whom it was a pleasure to get to know. Excellent Grace 11/18/2018 8:50:00 AM
