Get to Know Caroline Duncan

By 5 on July 27, 2020

Caroline Duncan started her career at 5 as a college summer intern in May of 2013. At first, she thought her internship might involve some filing, making copies and helping with ordinary office-related tasks. However, after two weeks she was on the front lines answering phones, processing price requests and interacting with 5’s energy advisors and supply partners. Many would have crumbled under the pressure and non-stop demands of serving both internal and external customers, but Caroline rose to the occasion and handled her work with great composure and an amazing attitude.
