Japanese term or phrase: ○○と○○を両立させながらの●●にこれからなろう!
○ = noun
● = person

Does this mean: "From now on, let's become ●● who is compatible with ○○ and ○○"

Is it correct?

Cheers.

English translation:From now on, I'm gonna be a (Ms. X) that can handle both (cooking AND cleaning) just fine!
Explanation:
Try not to get too hung up on "なろう"-type endings as "let's."
I think the speaker is saying this to herself about herself. She's committing to herself (not necessarily out loud) to become more capable of managing both these tasks w/o screwing up one while tending to the other. It doesn't necessarily mean she's doing them at the same moment in time; could be in a more general sense.
