How To 'Remove Render-Blocking JavaScript' On Wordpress Site

I am working on speeding up a client's website: http://www.camillajhards.com/. Google's PageSpeed tool flags up 'render-blocking javascript' as slowing down the page speed.

I understand I need to remove the JavaScript from the head of the website but I am not sure how to do this or where to put it.

It is a Wordpress website, and so far, plugins have done nothing to help.

Trying sticking your script tags at the bottom of the html tag (just inside the last </html>). I suspect that part of the page isn't loading until some javascript is run and that is what the pagespeed tool is actually complaining about.
