a "senhora" do meu marido


Explanation:
Aqui, no caso, a palavra "mistress" é colocada de forma ambígua. "Mistress" possui várias conotações, desde "patroa", "chefe" até "amante".

Como você citou que a frase faz parte de um treinamento, creio que dá para deixá-la da seguinte forma:

"Eu ficaria orgulhosa se você chegasse a ser a "senhora" do meu marido" (no sentido de chefe, cargo superior). Coloque entre aspas para mostrar a "brincadeira" com as palavras.
